He has dabbled with a lot of instruments in that 8 year span ranging from exploring rhythms from around the world on the drums, tabla and congas to delving into melody and harmony on the piano and guitar. He finally decided to devote his time to making the world a happier place through his guitar, That pursuit has led him to use his time spent at the Srishti School of Art, Global Music Institute and now at The Eastman School of music to hone both his performative and compositional craft.

He currently plays with his own Jazz trio presenting music from the traditional Jazz Cannon, his group the Sonic Alchemists that delves into his instrumental compositional world and a long standing collaboration with Priyana Chauhan in Eshaan & Priyana that explores where song meets words.
