Sanjay is a first generation immigrant, the son of parents who have barely a high school education. He is a graduate of UCLA with a degree in Economics. Sanjay began his career in technology, strategy and consulting roles at Deloitte, Genentech and the Santa Clara County Social Services Agency. He then launched a small consulting business in San Francisco, and subsequently founded a nonprofit that used social media to raise funds for changemakers across the globe. Sanjay moved to Florida nearly ten years ago and lives in Brevard County. As an activist, changemaker, and project manager he travelled to multiple states as an organizer during the 2016 presidential primaries, served as one of Brevard’s elected delegates to the Democratic National Convention, spent several weeks at Standing Rock, and has since been elected State Committeeman of the Brevard Democratic Party (BrevardDems).
