Praveen Kailas‘ first memory of traveling is when his family visited India when he was just a toddler. Since then Praveen has gone out of his way to explore countries across continents– and of course, return to India time and time again. To this day one of his favorite experiences was visiting Goa, India, which has a unique blend of Indian and Portuguese culture.
Praveen had the opportunity to study abroad in France and Spain when he was a student at Tulane University, and this only solidified his desire to explore the world. Since this life-changing trip he’s visited other parts of Europe, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. He spends much of his spare time checking out other countries’ methods of construction and energy efficiency; they inspire him to make changes in his own professional career.
In the future Praveen hopes to return to Egypt; the last time he visited was prior to the 2011 Revolution and he is interested to see how the country has evolved since then.
