Growing up in San Francisco, Sunil started swim lessons at seven-years-old, and joined his local YMCA team a year later when he was eight. He swam competitively for ten years, on both a club team and his high school swim team. During these years, Sunil taught lessons at St. Ignatius College Preparatory, and was also Captain and MVP of the Urban School swim team in San Francisco. Sunil is now majoring in music technology at NYU. Although he no longer swims competitively, he's stayed in the water and continues to share his love for sport as an instructor, sharing the many life skills that transcend the pool.
