When not at work or enjoying the outdoors, I try to maximize spending my time in the company of close friends and loved ones. I enjoy cooking, hosting dinners and entertaining. My friends always seem to appreciate my home cooked Indian cuisine.
I can be shy in large groups or at first meetings; however, warm up pretty easily. I would describe myself as honest, loyal, carefree, fun, caring and patient. Most would agree I am very friendly, generous and warm by nature. In any relationship, I am a true friend who will support you through the most challenging times.
I am passionate about traveling to new and far away destinations. I appreciate the very deep learning that happens when experiencing and living a culture other than your own. A recent favorite travel destination is Spain. I must confess that I often 'day dream' about lounging at a seaside villa on the Mediterranean Sea, watching the sun set while sipping on a glass of local Spanish Cava. Perhaps because my name means 'dream' in Hindi, I have a greater affinity for daydreaming ;-) All jokes aside, I do believe it is important to dream and to pursue our dreams and life goals without fear.
Music is one of my greatest passions. I appreciate many different genres of music and especially enjoy live music and dancing. An evening at the symphony is always a treat! I am also very fond of the performing arts and theater.
Most importantly, I believe in continued personal growth, learning and change throughout one's lifetime. I try to welcome life as it comes and make conscious efforts to practice living in the present moment.
