Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an engineer who works in New York and lives in Jersey City. I
was born in India, and did my undergrad there, and I moved to
Boston in 2001 for my MS and PhD, where I also became a Red Sox
& Patriots fan. I graduated and moved to New York in Dec 2006.
I love New York, enjoy traveling to Boston for pleasure, and to
other cities (mostly work related). Also, a couple of years ago,
two cats adopted me as their human. I generally get along with
people who are curious, intellectual, tolerant, logical, analytical
and scientific. I am a thinker, a bit of an introvert, a wall
flower in most groups, and not alpha at all.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to enjoy the good things - food, wine , music , art.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mathematics. Mechanics. Computers. The work related stuff.
Remembering Random Stuff. Making witty remarks. Sarcasm ( though
I've learned shut it up when people can get hurt ). Remembering
music I've liked. Obscure Bob Dylan references. Finding pennies on
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably the fact that I'm Indian and I'm quiet. Also the fact that
I come across as a serious person. That's not the case really, I'm
just a bit slow to warm up, and I can come up with some mean
zingers from time to time.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
3) Internet (I can do without it at home, but I need it
4) A paycheck
5) Intellectual stimulation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I am perennially bored.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at the IFC/Angelika/Film Forum or finishing up laundry and
grocery shopping. Streaming movies from Netflix. Recovering from
the work-week and looking forward to not being sleep deprived.

which is my current state (202).
