I love to travel. Favorite memories include: eating a deep fried tarantula in Phnom Penh (delicious), getting kicked out of a ping pong club in Bangkok hours before having to catch my flight home and café hopping in Paris.
I go out a lot and I love discovering neighborhood bars and establishing myself as a local. When I graduated, my local watering hole in Columbia, SC named a drink after me. The Dr. Rishi consisted of tequila, sprite and a dash of Tobasco. No one ordered it.
Other interests include ruining your favorite punk songs at karaoke night and going out for music. Lately, I've been kayaking every weekend to discover all of the awesome natural resources this part of the world had to offer --Tomales Bay, Santa Cruz, HMB, etc.
Presently, I'm a software engineer that is working on a product that aims to help neighborhoods and communities be safer and more tightly knit.
