Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Having spent my first 5 years in the states and the next 13 in
India, I'm always open to meet someone new, to try something
different and to travel and explore...
Now that I am in the Bay area for grad school, I'm hoping to expand
my horizons and see where life takes me.
I went to college at the Univeristy of Wisconsin where I was

kids around (which definitely makes you feel special :P)
I'm a firm believer in standing up for what you believe in but
otherwise a sensitive and happy person. To give you an idea, I'm
the kind of guy that loves playing his guitar on a warm Sunday
afternoon and can't wait to get into the kitchen to cook a
fantastic meal for myself (and hopefully someone else). Cooking and
music are two big hobbies of mine.
