Abhay grew up in India and after an education that spanned from catholic convents to ashram-run schools, he moved to the UK to pursue his PhD research in breath-controlled computer games at the University of York. With a firm belief in the power of stories to create real change, Abhay went on to found the Digital Identities project through which he has worked with journalists, curators, writers and artists in thirteen countries. He has led projects on gender, identity, and climate change, reaching a 100 million people online. The seed for his debut novel was planted whilst running mindfulness workshops in Japan. He is working on his second novel, finding time to write on the train journeys to the different cities he works in.
