I was born on the 19th of June 1959, the first-born of  three brothers. My mother was a teacher and my father was a businessman. I entered the juniorate in Tudella, Sri Lanka in 1973. I made my novitiate in Ragama, Sri-Lanka and my profession in August of 1978. 

Immediately after the novitiate I began the year of scholasticate  in Sri Lanka, Negombo. After several years of teaching in the Brothers schools in Sri Lanka, I then spent 7 years in Pakistan as a missionary. 

I returned to Sri Lanka the 2000 and I was provincial bursar for two terms and I was also a provincial councillor. In 2016, I was appointed, by Brother Emili Turú, Provincial Superior of the Province of South Asia for a first term.
