I am Abhishek Sahu and I was born in India. I love doing adventurous things, taking up community work, learning new languages and exploring new places. I was 8 years old when I took up Photography as a hobby using my father’s old Kodak Ektralite camera, and before I knew, taking pictures became my passion. My photography passion has led me to click birds in remotest of places, hitchhiking people on cars, trucks, bicycles and once a camel-cart. For instance, the picture that you see in the background was taken in one of the remote places in Scotland Highlands.

Professionally speaking, I work as a Senior Functional Analyst in the Fixed Income department of BNP Paribas Bank. My job role includes but is not restricted to bond valuation, leading major in-house projects, and ensuring smooth functioning of secondary market bond trading platform. Apart from India, I have also worked internationally in London, an experience that helped me to develop a cross-cultural sensitivity and adaptability to fit into high pressure, client-facing role in an Investment Bank. I have also been appreciated constantly by traders, marketers and senior management on various occassions, within BNP, due to my cost saving and automation initiatives.

During my free time,I like to solve Mathematical puzzles or teach the underprivileged kids for free. Last but not least, I love playing volleyball and have represented my school in district level interschool matches. In short, you’re going to spend an interesting weekend with me. Cheers!
