His schooling till 5th grade went in a town in Krishna District and the rest in Guntur. His schooling in Guntur had been a great learning for him and also a place where he built his skills, knowledge, and also ever lasting friendships. He then underwent his Intermediate education from a local college nearby and he cracked the IIT Advanced entrance test twice. And got selected for the Indian Naval Academy, Ezhimala, Kerala, India. He consecutively cracked three SSB interviews with SSB Bangalore, NSB Visakhapatnam and SCC Bhopal for Indian Naval Academy, Indian Military and Indian Navy respectively, but had to reject the offers.
He then joined his lovely institute VVIT which turned him into a man ready to hit the society. His journey during his graduation is like a golden period for him. In the first year, he started attending many and hosting a few workshops at IITs. He then pursued Venture Development Diploma Program and served as a student leader for the Northeastern University's Venture Development Center at his Institute in collaboration with Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation(APSSDC).

He took up a biz project and really learnt a lot out of it by jumping out to the world and trying out new things. He then served as National Service Scheme(NSS) cadet at his Institute in which he conducted several social service activities on behalf of his Institute.
