Krishnan grew up right in Minnesota. He got his B.A. in English and finished the Master in Education Program at the University of Minnesota. Currently he employs neither in his position as a mortgage consultant for Wells Fargo. He got involved in Vibha circuitously. As a social studies teacher at SILC (the School of India for Languages and Culture) in St. Paul he wanted to discuss the topic of poverty in India. He stumbled across the Vibha Kalakaar (back when it was a kids competition), and in his role as principal of the school encouraged all students at the school to enter in the competition. He wanted to get more involved so he came to a meeting and has been active ever since. He led the Dream Mile in 2012 and started in the role of ACC in 2013. He enjoys playing guitar to his two little kids and dabbles on the tabla.
