His passion to support people and an ever-present interest in providing person-centered care did not fall under the working framework of dentistry therefore this led him to explore Social Work which introduced him to the disability sector and to PODDSS.

Along with extensive theoretical knowledge, Parimal brings new perspectives to the working arena given his Indian background and uncommon orientation of both medical and social education. Outside of academic accomplishment, he is also an avid sportsman having played Soccer Nationals in India and can communicate in 3 different languages English, Hindi and Marathi. In addition, Parimal also likes to visit new places and discover new places in outback Australia. Parimal is also a movie buff with a special interest in Sci-fiction movies.
