My self-summary
I'm an extrovert who revels in the throng, and I believe that the best kind of personal growth comes from new experiences and getting out of your comfort zone.

I grew up in Maryland, Indonesia and Australia. I've been to India close to 30 times in my life, where Bangalore is basically my real home. I graduated from university in Boston and have been living in the Washington area since graduation. I work in international development, and I am aware of how my field contributes to the global standardization of culture/markets/philosophy/norms, and I am conflicted by it.

I have a beautiful '89 Club Fuji which I love to ride around town. I used to be an active photographer, but I can't seem to find the inspiration (or time) to pick up my DSLR - but I rely heavily on my iPhone. I have deep pride and respect for all my friends, and I find that forging strong, dependable relationships with amazing people is what makes life worth living.

I find beauty in: americana, dachshunds, indianness, medium format cameras, cars and bicycles, late nights, elegant prose, house parties, new wave music, backpacking, museums, uncertainty, abstract tasks, shows, good pens, the outdoors, whiskey, documentaries, tolerant people, spicy food, music festivals.

I dislike: winter nights, last call, saying goodbyes, cheap wine, stasis, contemporary pop music, obsessive materialism, wanderlust, boring clothes.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a five year plan. You can ask me about it, but it really ends up with me spending a year or so traveling abroad.
I’m really good at
Staying positive, adaptation, and helping people feel comfortable.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm an excellent conversationalist and that I wear jewelry.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Short stories by Fitzgerald, One Hundred Years of Solitude, magical realism of all sorts really, South Asian literature, The Confederacy of Dunces, Guns Germs and Steel, the poems of Charles Bukowski, Calvin and Hobbes, The End of Poverty, Infinite Jest. I admit that I really enjoyed The Fountainhead, so feel free to berate me for that.

I read more publications than books these days. NYT, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, The New Republic, GQ, The Caravan, The Woodrow Wilson Quarterly, Foreign Affairs, and The Economist.

Movies: Wes Anderson junkie. 80s teen movies, Brick. I can't watch Requiem for a Dream or Se7en ever again. American Beauty, anything by the Cohen brothers. Star Wars. I love a good documentary, and King of Kong has to be my favorite so far.

iPhone: Alt-J, Animal Collective, Bassnectar, Beachhouse, Big Boi, Blackalicious, Bob Dylan, Caribou, The Chemonical Brothers, Chrome Sparks, Crystal Castles, Chrome Sparks, Cut Copy, Deer Tick, Delorean, Father John Misty, Filastine, Flying Lotus, Gil-Scott Heron and Jamie XX, Girl Talk, Gold Panda, James Blake, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Ray, LCD Soundsystem, Lykke Li, Marvin Gaye, Mickey Avalon, Middle Brother, Miles Davis, MiM0SA, Miracle Fortress, Nas, Neon Indian, Old Crow Medicine Show, Phantogram, Poor moon, Pretty Lights, Purity Ring, Radiohead, Ray Charles, Schoolboy Q, Shabazz Palaces, Teen Daze, Tennis, Toro Y Moi, Tupac, The Velvet Underground, Washed Out, the xx, XXYYXX. I can listen to Nujabes and Simon & Garfunkel until the end of time.

Food: South Indian vegetarian food, greasy American diner stuff, soup dumplings, and stone ground grits.
The six things I could never do without
Friends and family, a passport, a camera, a bicycle, a pair of proper headphones, and something to read.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Good friends, sex and love, music, the occasional insecurity, where to travel, visual composition, how to be better at work, good names for dogs, where I want to be and how to get there.
On a typical Friday night I am
Up late and up to no good.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book, so there's nothing that I really have to hide or to get off my chest. What you see, hear and feel is pretty much what you get.
