Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Moved here from Texas (Houston, by way of Austin) about three years
ago for work. Hasn't been as bad as I thought. Right now, I'm
focused on my career and my hobbies.
I'm half Indian (India, that is) half Mexican. They call me curry
burrito, much to my chagrin. There's not as much ethnic diversity
here in Ohio compared to what I'm used to, but I'm bringing a
little of the Texan flavor to the Midwest.
Myers Briggs: ESTJ - a pretty textbook case, if I may say so.
1. Context - History and Wikipedia nut.
2. Competitive - Probably what drives me to sales. Performance is a
degree of how you measure against others.
3. Focus - Finish what I start
4. Deliberative - I like to plan, and plan my plans.
5. Maximizer - Like to use my strengths particularly and engaging
A little bit of a workaholic right now. Political
philosophy/science nerd (that's what my degree is in), sales guy
extraordinaire. Lindy hopper (swing dance), probably spent most of
my free time listening to swing music, watching lindy videos, and
scaring my dog with my dancing. Technology "enthusiast," in my case
it's a hobby and a job. Kinda geeky. Okay, more than kinda. Gamer.
Conservative, buttoned up guy who is somewhat curiously attracted
to free-spirited liberal types. Very ambitious, working my way up
in the world now from both a business and a personal perspective.

Also I have a very sweet little dog, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named
Lily. She's great. Very shy, loves to spend time in her crate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, three things:
1. Work - sales, really like it, really trying to make it
2. Fitness - I've lost 90 lbs in the past year or so and have been
big into exercise since. I'm working towards gaining muscle now
after losing for so long and maintaining low body-fat.
3. I love to swing dance. Lindy hop, charleston, etc. I dance at
our weekly spot in Columbus, NYOH's Buckeye Bar on Wednesdays and
travel all over the country to dance. It's great fun. Regardless of
dating, I'd be happy to introduce of you to the swing dancing
community here in town.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Road Trips. Oh how I love them. Sometimes, if I have a lot of
time or a full mind I will drive aimlessly through the Hill
Country. Pretty relaxing
-Football, particularly University of Houston Football
-Drawing. I've been drawing since I was a kid and it relaxes me and
gives my mind something to do.
-Wikipedia. I'm kind of a trivia nut.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Men's Clothing (i'm very interested in bespoke clothing, have a
couple suits/shirts custom made and am always looking at having
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out of town swing dancing OR just chilling out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I once set off the fire alarm for my apartment building back when I
lived in Boston. The entire building had to be evacuated, many of
which were also my coworkers at the time. I never lived it down.
