Today he lives in New York City where he runs his business, Letters In Ink, while continuing to pursue a multifaceted career in the arts.


"Lovely and human. The tale of a man who began by following a story and ended up creating his own."

- Jenny Lawson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Furiously Happy
"Insightful and inspirational."

-Kirkus (starred review)
". . . Imaginative, diversion-full, and refreshingly green memoir about the surprises that living a creative life can offer."

"A beautifully written journey of self-discovery, The Elephants In My Backyard is intimate, moving, hilarious and painful. This quirky memoir unfolds in a series of anecdotes-miniature gems-much like the intricate chalk designs that are one of Rajiv Surendra's many talents."

- Anosh Irani, author of The Parcel
