WHO ARE WE?
We are a trio who happen to be family. Eavesdrop on any of our conversations and within minutes you will feel our pulsating passion and excitement for food, travel and new experiences! Reading about places is magical, planning a trip is joyful, getting bargains warms our hearts, and touching down in any new destination fulfills us more than anything else ever could. We take trips to eat and joyfully recreate the same magic in our kitchens. Each of our identities has been shaped by our diverse exposures to an amazing body of mankind….and this is why we believe that we will always have a lifelong, global affair with seeing, understanding, and reacting to the world.
Our goal is to extend this forum beyond ourselves and our own reflections, and to engage in a dialogue with fellow global citizens- to create a place that is a blended cocktail of food, travel, human stories, and everything else that shapes our tremendous cultural landscape. We invite you to our home online. Visit, linger and share your own experiences.
And that’s what we do here at A Global Affair. We never stop moving.

Rohan wholeheartedly follows the words of Robert Louis Stevenson: “I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. The great affair is to move.” He savors every part of the journey from the airport experience to the hidden gems he captures along the way. When he’s not working as a brand strategist, Rohan is constantly thinking about where he’ll go next. He does it for the same reason he works in advertising: to understand people, groups, and cultures. He consistently comes away confident that there’s so much more that unites us than divides us. Rohan is a graduate of Syracuse University and currently lives in Princeton, New Jersey.
