I was born in Sri Lanka and grew up in France. I moved to Chicago for grad school and then moved to SF to be part of the tech world.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm very excited about my new life here. I love the closeness of the parks, mountains, and beaches. On week ends, you'll have a good chance to find me hiking, rock climbing or chilling on the coast!
I try to travel whenever I can. Last year, I did a road trip in Yucatan in Mexico and went to Shanghai and Honk Kong for the holidays. This year, I was lucky to be able to work remotely and travel for 3 months! I went to Colombia, Peru, Spain, Bosnia, Croatia, and Montenegro. Favorite place so far, Colombia! I would love to live there for few months.
On a professional level, I'm a founding member of a tech startup. It's been a crazy ride since we started, with a lots of ups and downs, but I feel really lucky to be part of this adventure.
