I hail from Sako Village, under Thrimshing Gewog in Trashigang District of Eastern Bhutan.

Thungkhar Primary School, Jigme Sherubling High School, Khaling and Sherubtse College, Kanglung are the three schools from where I obtained education. I spent 12 years of stay at Sherubtse College, Kanglung from 1971-1977 and 1981-1985.

By profession I am a retired banker with 24 long years of service in Bank of Bhutan Limited (BOBL) from Sept, 1987 to March, 2012. After voluntary resignation from BOBL in March 2012, I pursued my passion in painting of landscapes and portraits through which I gained new level of skill and expertise in art.

I am currently employed on 3 year contract as Chief Internal Auditor in State Trading Corporation of Bhutan Ltd (STCBL) from March 24, 2015 to till date. I am still continuing paintings on week end holidays to keep abreast with my passion.

After expiry of my service contract term on 23rd March, 2018, I aspire to become self-employed with my passion in art.
