When not nerding out over the intricacies of new tech, Apratim does stand-up and improv comedy, plays tennis and gets excited when Roger Federer wins matches, boxes, and reads about presidential history over fine Scotch. Apratim also loves explaining that his name means ‘unique student’ in Hindi and that it is alright that you cannot pronounce it properly.
