My self-summary
I am originally from Turkey and I've been in the states for about 10 years (PA > SF > NY). I work in tech and make a decent living, considering I used to play sitar in the subways of NYC. I love jamming and watching live music. Spontaneous music is the best music.

I am pretty active and outdoorsy. Muay Thai (thai kickboxing) is my main sport. I train daily and like to challenge myself every once in a while by competing in amateur fights and tournaments. You may often find me complain about sore muscles or bruises but my nagging has gone down since I discovered the rumble roller.

I started playing sitar at a yoga studio in the mission Sundays. Music for yoga is a good barter.
