Apart from my day job at a tech startup, I like to spend time on art, drawing, and poetry. I make charcoal portraits, write poetry and run a poetry meet up group in San Francisco.
I am fortunate to find work opportunities at multiple cities - Delhi, Bombay, Pune, Bangalore, Atlanta, WhitePlains, Princeton, London at different stages in my life. Up until recently, I did not feel I belong to a place or country and called myself - Place Agnostic, but then I fell in love with San Francisco for its laid back, quirky and adventurous people.
I admire thoughtful, well read, ambitious, and someone who explores their creative side. Adventure in life for me is to have multiple perspectives and explored different paths in life. Evolution of my thought process in recent years is summarized in an article by another technologist - http://chronicle.com/article/From-Technologist-to/128231/
I find anyone who has constant yearning for learning, active life, working to enjoy life and becoming a better person, and more importantly ability to connect at human level get along well with me. Learning and taking up new challenges defines me, and also attracts me towards a person.
Being vulnerable, authentic, and real are not for the weak hearted. I respect and love individuals who possess these qualities.
If you are someone who is looking for meaningful conversations, real connection, enjoy reading and spending time at cafes, live music at small neighborhood places, looking for effortless chemistry, synergy and potential for more than we should talk more.
I hope to find someone to do activities together, develop and share interests, explore and visit cities together, enjoy road trips, time with each other in-spite of our individual busy schedules, develop deep loving and sharing relationship where we connect at multiple levels after initial spark and connection.
I am willing and open to new experiences of creativity, thoughts and culture. I try to make honest attempts to be helpful, encouraging and kind to people around me. It is my constant quest to improve and become a better human being.
My interests are diverse, and evolve as I explore myself as a person such as - learning a new language, going for a theatre class, drawing/sketching, going on a drive without fine prints, spending time at book shops and public libraries, museums, art shows, spending time reading/blogging at cafes, going out for live music, movies, enjoying a stroll in neighborhood parks and more. Just too many things to do, and with the right person it is even more fun.
I spend time connecting with myself. I play games :) - Ping pong, badminton, field hockey and soccer. I enjoy running and biking around Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach.
I switch between carefree and intense.
