The three C’s that Bryan’s life revolves around- Connection, conversation, and celebration- are essentially what he lives for.It doesn’t matter where he gets it from- through music, travel, or random conversations with strangers (which are his favorite). He is someone who would define his perfect life as a union between music and travel. Bryan is a person who always trusts his instincts, staying open-minded and traveling mostly without a proper plan. His planned adventures, on the rare occasion of them happening, the plan is almost always tossed aside in place of unexpected twists that popped up during his travels that teach him about life’s truths, and unravel rich and new perspectives. He has learned to hone his instincts, engage himself with new people and that sometimes the most unexpected course in life can be the best one, all from the roads he has taken in his life, both literal and metaphorical.

Krishnarao Jaisim is an architect who draws his inspiration from the likes of architectural greats like Buckminster Fuller, Koenigsberger and Geoffrey Bawa. Passionate in his field, he started his tryst with building eco-friendly projects nearly forty years ago, and today has awards such as the International Gold Star Millennium Award (2007) and the Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Performance in the field of Architecture (2007) to his name. He started an architectural practice in 1970 under the name “Jaisim-Fountainhead”, inspired by Ayn Rand’s novel, ‘The Fountainhead’. The firm’s philosophy to be committed to the earth and creating structures that are iconoclastic, individualistic, and eco-friendly has won them laurels at the National Competition for the Cochin Stadia, and other notable projects like the ‘TAJ Fisherman’s Cove’ and the ‘Small Industries Pavilion’. From 1975-1980, Jaisim-Fountainhead spread overseas, dabbling not just in constructing buildings, but other areas such as the import and distribution of materials, scheduled contracts and a stone crusher and fabrication unit. He returned to India in 1980 and settled in Bangalore. His challenge is to empower people to become agents of change in society by becoming the reference for sustainable habitat in India.
