Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to SF a few years ago, after having lived in completely
diverse corners of India and then Santa Barbara. SF however, is a
class apart as it caters well to my interests in life. I like its
laid back attitude and yet the multitudes of things to do.
I enjoy a simple life with an adventure and thrill seeking side.
For the very reason, I am often outdoors: climbing, motorcycling,
biking or just walking. I like NOT owning a lot of things and
believe that a simple life is a relaxed and happier life.
Practicing meditation is a big part of my life now, having seen the
benefits and the peace it has brought.
Often I let myself drift into a state of day dreaming: painting
pictures in my mind.. of flying through the galaxy and universe, of
bringing a smile on someone's face, of running through savanna
grass, of immersing myself in a different culture.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living a simple and joyful life.
Professionally speaking, I build software at a startup in San
Francisco SoMa... it fulfills my (some would say nerdy) curiosity
and interest in understanding how things work and building
When, I am not doing that... I am usually drinking coffee
, rock climbing
, or attending interesting events
in the city. I have also added motorcycling
to the list in that
past year. And of course, all these activities are best enjoyed
when hanging out with friends.
I also have a deep interest in meditation, buddhist philosophy and
what it means to lead a happy life. Hence reading, practicing
meditation and just 'sitting', account for several hours per week
from my time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Rock climbing, ping pong, programming, staying fit, dropping pearls
of wisdom and laughing even during the worst of times. Also, I have
been told that I have the best poker face and facepalm, so I'll add
that to the resume.
The first things people usually notice about me

Real words of praise from San Franciscans. :|
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Anything except fast food (chipotle excluded). One of my goals in
life is to taste all the cuisines
before my gastric powers wane.
Though, I'll always have a soft corner for Indian food.
Non fiction is what attract me the most, unless it is an
exceptional science fiction. Currently, the top of my bookshelf is
occupied by meditation, philosophy and computer engineering books;
and some science magazines. I do indulge in an occasional batman
comic though :)
I am heavily into symphonies and instrumentals. Hans Zimmer is my
favorite music composer and SF Symphony is my favorite event to go
to in the city. Besides orchestra, I really like old rock classics
and any music that can make me smile.
: I enjoy learning
and growing a bit as a person every day. I have watched countless
documentaries; from astrophysics to political, and keep searching
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pretty sure I can live without most things, but for the sake of
discussion and okc profile:
Compassion & kindness
Family & friends
A bicycle (and now a motorcycle)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Universe and 'what the hell is this all about?'.
Humans, cultures and the next motorcycle adventure.
How to help people and make a difference.
Where did I leave my phone?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no such thing as a typical Friday night.
I could be anywhere: a restaurant or a bar with friends, or the
climbing gym, or coding ruthlessly in the office, reading or
watching documentaries at home. Or simply sitting for meditation.
