As Co-Founder and CEO, Suraj is responsible for the overall development of Air Amber’s strategy to meet the ends of their vision, ‘Bigger Hearts, Smaller World’. He drives the organisation’s financial growth to ensure sustainability and longevity in impact. Suraj is passionate about building uplifting relationships between people and communities that inspire positive action.

He has travelled extensively, seeking adventure in learning from each relationship that he encounters. His passion and dauntless spirit have led to numerous large, medium and small-scale efforts to improve and to dignify the lives of those in marginalised circumstances. He has served in the corporate sphere, always seeking to connect personally with clients and ensuring the highest level of delivery in projects. During his schooling years, Suraj participated actively in both sports and the arts. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from The State University of New York at Buffalo.

Suraj strongly believes that he has a part to play in co-creating a world filled with compassion, and not pity.
