I was born in India and raised in many different cities spanning
the whole country, staying just long enough to make some good
friends but never more than a couple of years. It’s a long story
but for the imaginative ones out there, I can assure you it had
nothing to do with witness protection or the mafia. I've continued
on my journey since then, until the day I arrived in this lovely
city and now I think my days as a nomad are finally over. The cool
thing about traveling though, is that you learn some really
valuable life skills, like swearing in five different languages.
What I’m doing with my life
My research; to understand the physics that underlies the amazing
things that we see around us and silly as it may sound, to find
ways to recreate its beauty on a TV screen. The ultimate goal ?
Getting kids hooked on video games. I also enjoy running,
bouldering, playing the guitar, listening to music, watching a new
movie every week, drinking mildly intoxicating/stimulating
beverages and bad joke contests. Sometimes I dabble in experimental
cooking, which my friends can't seem to appreciate yet. I think my
work is way ahead of it's time.
I’m really good at
Making friends laugh.

On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, eating out, watching movies, grabbing a
beer or two or three.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once heard a random song on the radio and I liked it. It was Katy

You're looking for someone to share a laugh with, in both the good
times and bad.
