Apart from my day job at a tech startup, I spend time on art, drawing, and poetry. I make charcoal portraits, write poetry and run a poetry meet up group in San Francisco.
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 has a creative inclination or side to themselves. Adventure in life is to have multiple perspectives and exploring 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 spark and connection with someone who is free spirited, not defined and bounded by notions of religion, society and upbringing. In general questioning and challenging social status quo, constant yearning for learning, active life, working to enjoy life, becoming a better person, and more importantly ability to connect at human level is what makes me find mental and intellectual chemistry with someone which I believe is equally important along with physical and emotional chemistry.
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, finding a real connection, enjoy reading and spending time at cafes, live music at small neighborhood places, seeking effortless chemistry, synergy and potential for more than we should talk more. Sitting and reading something together, walking and just relaxing with wine on couch are just as fun as going out for me.
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 value my alone time as much as others.
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.
