Joe Biden’s speechwriter is a first-generation Indian-American who lives in New York and previously worked for the new commander-in-chief, reports said Wednesday. 

Vinay Reddy, who penned Biden’s inaugural speech for Wednesday’s ceremony, is currently the speechwriter on the Biden-Harris Transition team and also worked as a senior advisor and speechwriter for the team’s campaign, the Hindustan Times reported. 

Previously, Reddy did stints writing speeches for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Obama-Biden reelection campaign. 

He also worked for the National Basketball Association as the Vice President of Strategic Communications after serving as Biden’s chief speechwriter during his second term as Vice President in the Obama-Biden White House, the outlet reported. 

Reddy was born and raised in Ohio but his family comes from the Telangana Pothireddypeta village in Karimnagar, India, the outlet said. Reddy’s father Narayana Reddy started his life in the US in 1970 following his completion of medical school in Karimnagar. 

The speechwriter’s family is well connected in their hometown — Reddy’s grandfather Thirupathi Reddy served as the village head and the family still owns acres of land in the area, visiting regularly. 

Reddy currently lives in New York with his wife and two daughters.
