An interesting tidbit

Niraj has recently become interested in the art and science of longevity, which informs how we can live healthier for longer, so that we can do more of what we love. As a parent to young kids, a son to aging parents, and a desire to do more, Niraj was inspired to learn more about it. One of his favourite longevity tips is to laugh, often.


Niraj has been curious about how things work since he was a child, whether understanding why the sky is blue, the mechanics behind card tricks, or how boomerangs work (he’s still working on that one). At the root of this desire is a drive to create more enjoyable experiences for people and find ways to surprise and delight. Coupled with a love of solving problems, led to Niraj’s career of transforming businesses and performance.
