Prashant Kakad is an entertainer based out of Portland OR.
In his previous lifetime, like a good middle class older son in India would do, Prashant got his B.Tech in Fiber Science from UDCT (Mumbai, India) in 2003, MS in Polymer Science from Cornell University (Ithaca, NY) in 2006 and worked at Intel as a Process Engineer for over 3 years until September 2009. While at Cornell, Prashant published papers in reputed journals and also got a Patent to make Electrospun nanofiber-based biosensor assemblies, an idea he came up with.
Prashant is presently applying experiences gained at Intel and previously to process engineer his life. Prashant thoroughly understands quitting a well paying stable job in this economy is an insane act and whole heartedly recommends it to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
He thoroughly enjoys Hindustani film and light classical singing, he is very fortunate to learn from Smt Mita Kundu and now Smt Nisha Joshi. Along with like minded talented musicians, Prashant formed Pancham, the newest bollywood band in Portland, they performed to a sold out crowd of 450 people in July 09.

DJ’ing has been a natural progression, he has done private parties, Radio Shows and DJ’s International Dance Night’s at Pasha in Portland every First Friday. His niche is in playing international dance music from across the globe!
