Work With Me


Why me?

I’m Raksha Rao, a Software professional passionate about travel and photography. I specialize in adventure and experiential travel and dream about traveling in a world without borders some day.

I am a certified scuba diver, a fitness freak, and have a deep fear of heights. But that doesn’t stop me from bungee jumping or cliff jumping, or anything else. The rush and brush of adrenaline excite me!

Within a year, I have already worked with Tourism Authority of Thailand, India and Karnataka Tourism Boards, several hotel stays and brands. The Roving Heart is rapidly growing and has been able to inspire a lot of people along the way.

Within a short span of time, I have grown to be a social media influencer with a highly engaged audience. Expect great quality content and added value from every collaboration with me. Mostly because I work hard at everything I do, and will strive to give you the BEST VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY!

Disclaimer – I only work with brands that I personally align with and I only provide honest reviews.

There are many ways we can work together. Hit me at for any queries or for Media Kit. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
