As a kid, Arjun loved dancing for fun at local Desi community gatherings, weddings, and other celebrations. During college, Arjun joined Texas Nach Baliye, a co-ed Bollywood fusion team, at The University of Texas at Austin. Being a part of this team not only cemented a passion for dance within Arjun, but the team also gave him a deep sense of community. Arjun now lives in Washington, D.C. and works in the Middle East Bureau at the U.S. Agency for International Development. He enjoys K-pop, cooking, and reading books about Asian-American experiences--Blue Boy by Rakesh Satyal is one of his favorite books.
