Meet the Team
Co-Founder & Play Designer
Aalok spent most of his childhood riding bikes into the woods to fish out crabs from the nearby lakes. He started climbing and exploring the outdoors at the age of 10. Needless to say that adventure has always been a part of him. His interest in engineering took him to Australia, where he finished his Masters in Biomedical Engineering from The University of New South Wales. The next years were those of exploration, which found him in media, and advertising. The boredom of the desk job got to him, and he started FeetOffGround in 2012 with the intention to promote outdoor lifestyles in India. He has been re-inventing rock climbing walls ever since, vowing only to move forward. He is passionate about music and photography.
Partner & Play Propagandist
Prashant has over 17 years of work experience across industries like education, real estate, trade-fairs and exhibitions. He has been involved with children in the creative space since his early career days. He has a penchant for adventure and an eye for detail. As the Play Propagandist at FeetOffGround, he introduces educators to the need for unstructured play, the concept of learning though multiple play systems and the social skills developed in this environment. He ensures a synergy between the creative ideas from the FeetOffGround think-tank and the needs of the clients. He feels that the ability to see an educator’s vision come to life is what he likes the most about this work, this way of life.
Philosophy - Even though we are a small company, we realise that our choice of material in manufacturing our climbing walls and play equipment has an impact on the environment. We work only with metal, rope and wood: most of them are either recyclable, or recycled. We do not use plastics.
