Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Back in Mumbai for the foreseeable future!
I'm an optimist, a dreamer, an old school romantic, an idealist, a
globe trotter, tea-lover, a foodie, usually zen and most of the
time a geek. I'm a full time sapiosexual and a part-time poet (when
the mood or the emotion strikes me). You could say I'm part Clark
Kent (I strive to be as much of a gentleman), part Kung Fu Panda
(yes I'm big and cuddly), part Leonard Hofstadter (I am a bit of a
geek), part Noah Calhoun (I'm definitely a romantic). The dreamer
and idealist in me wants to save the world in some way even if it
means helping anyone in the smallest way because I think the world
could use a lot more kindness.
The interesting irony is that the romantic in me isn't a fan of
meeting someone in a bar, but at the same time, my wandering and
quest for a similar wavelength means that it's often incredibly
hard to meet compatible people. Online dating is one compromise I'm
willing to make and I'm hoping I have better luck here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a user experience designer. To explain it in simple terms - I
design and make software and mobile apps better, easier and more
enjoyable to use (thus giving a good user experience).
I love that my job lets me travel plenty. The past year has seen
trips to Istanbul, London, Sri Lanka, New York, San Francisco,
Washington DC and Texas and I'm looking forward to plenty more to
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Remembering random trivia - like how Russia has a larger area
- Languages - I can spend a few days in a place talking to someone
there and I can sound like them when I use the local language. Had
the privilege of being able to do this in Italy and Germany in
- Long conversations and storytelling - feels silly including this
here but I love to talk (as the length of this profile might
attest) and have been told I have a flair for sharing the stories
of my adventures from around the world.s.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that I'm laughing or smiling and that when I do smile, my
whole face smiles.
The twinkle in my eyes like I'm upto something mischievous.

It is interesting how this box says "I'm an empty essay, fill me
out" because if I did try, this would take forever. To put it
simply, I pretty much love a variety of all of the above and I
could probably list 100 of each if given the chance. So I'll try
and describe this with random picks from my favourites of
Books - The Alchemist, Lord of the Rings, Only Love is Real, Cloud
Atlas, The Name of the Rose, Dune
Movies - Cloud Atlas, The Great Gatsby, The Man from Earth, The
Matrix, Kung Fu Panda (well obviously!), Dead Poet's Society,
Shows - Lost, Heroes, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead,
Music - Ludovico Einaudi, Queen, Iron Maiden, Skrillex, Michael
I'll also add a category of Things that should have their own
category here - Tea, Cheese, Travel Destinations, Musicals, Comics,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My friends and family (spread out around the world)
2. My phone (it allows me to communicate with 1.)
3. My optimism (keeps me going in life)
4. Memories and the constant desire to create new ones (keeps life
6. Kindness and Humanity (the world needs so much more of both)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, Arsenal, design, gadgets, world issues, love, sex,
travelling, books, dreams, plans, memories
I think each one of us among this 7 billion strong on this planet
form a collective humanity, something so complex and yet so
beautiful. Think about it, there is no one out there in those 7
billion who is exactly like you. You are who you are because you're
the collective sum of all your experiences, emotions, memories and
imperfections and that makes you so unique that I wish everyone
would cherish that. The world would be a lot happier if we did.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing at home, music playing in the background, Oolong tea
steaming in a cup beside me with a good book in my hand. Or else
I'm catching up friends over dinner and maybe a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well I'm willing to admit pretty much anything and everything but
let's give it a shot anyway.
- I love the colour orange.
- I wear a lot of blue
- I like to get pedicures

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- We have a high match score (something that seems to be
- You're kind, intelligent, generous, honest (so rare these days)
and there's nothing and no-one you'd rather be than your own unique
- You'd love to make a friend (and maybe more whether serious or
casual) from a far away place (or nearby)
- You value intelligence, romance and creativity more than anything
- If you think we've got things and common
- You've got this far. As a UX designer I know that people have
short attention spans and don't like scrolling but I appreciate
people who have patience.
- Do you need any more reasons? Sometimes life needs that leap of
faith, you never know what can happen.
