Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in South India, grew up in North Africa and because my parents love traveling, by 13 I had seen most of Europe and a few places in Asia even though I remember being annoyed that I had to walk so much. Ive been in the US for over 9 years now and for most part it has been a great experience.

Books, Camera, Music, ... cant think of anything else.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I dont spend time "thinking" per se, but every now and then mentally wander on auto-pilot based on something Ive seen or read...
Photography; what started as an attempt to learn a new skill, took a life of its own after it made me more acutely aware of the fickleness of life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at a bar shooting pool with friends, or at my cousins hanging out with my 2 year old niece...watching a movie at home...or somewhere I shouldn't be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
