Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As I was bidding farewell to my tour guide on the Inca trail tour
last month, he remarked - "I sure will never forget you". There
sure is a story behind his remark but he has been doing these tours
for over ten years. I reflected on how so many others have said the
same to me... When I make connections with folks these are deep
connections which usually last a lifetime. I'd rather have five of
these connections over a hundred superficial ones :) That's just
I've now lived in Seattle longer than I've lived anywhere else.
Yet, I've been in Seattle only for nine years. That just means that
my perception on this world has been molded by some very diverse
experiences... My other major stops in this life of mine have been
- Boston, Montreal and Lovedale. The last is a little hamlet on a
hill station in India, where I attended a private residential
school. Picture greenery, mountains, rivers, rain and a plethora of
outdoor adventures... Hey! Doesn't that sound like the Pacific
Northwest?? Indeed, that's why Seattle and the Puget Sound feels
I've inherited a love for discovering the world from my dad. When I
was a little kid we travelled across much of the world. As a
grown-up, I've continued travelling. At times these experiences
feel surreal, as if I’m living a dream - the sunrise at Abu Simbel,
the aurora borealis in Iceland, Hammurabi's code at the Louvre, the
pink lagoon in Bolivia,... and the list goes on.
At home, I embrace the mundane with the extraordinary. I run long
distance and relish a healthy existence. I enjoy frequenting
Broadway productions and concerts. I'm quite adventurous when it
comes to dining out - I usually have to negotiate the spiciness of
my cuisine... "Five stars, can I have seven??"
As a kid, when I was about to quit yet another activity, my dad
brought me to a room and gave me a serious pep talk – “If you do
something do it properly, else don’t bother doing it!” That’s
remark has stuck with me ever since. I tend to be very dedicated
about my passions. Think 30 marathons (Boston, ultras etc.),
Photography,… That also has meant I’m game for trying almost
anything once. Else how will I know if I might like it? That’s
included adventures such as getting my Scuba diving certification,
Sky diving, Zip lining, Surfing,... Yeah, I quickly realized that I
might never be able to audition for a Baywatch life guard role
At the end of the day what do I want out of life? In a nutshell -
"If my life flashes before my eyes one day, I want to make sure
it's worth watching!" Care to be a part of it :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it - one day at a time!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Quite a few things really:
I have been told I'm an excellent listener
I can be sarcastic and have a dry sense of humor. You might love
this or be offended by it. Not to worry - I've learnt to gently
probe my subjects to test their level or tolerance ...

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The next place on my travel list I'm going to cross off...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It really depends... I might be quite content staying home after a
long week or out with friends or maybe in the airport heading out
on an adventure.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
