My self-summary
I enjoy my life -- and make it fun by trying new things. Want to learn something new every year, travel to a different country or develop new friendships.
After growing up in India, I have lived and worked in Europe and US -- and love exploring other cultures, countries and understand the different perspectives that people have.
Have lived in the bay area for 10+ years now, and consider this to be my home! After having lived in many places (relocations for school and career), I am done with that phase of life -- though I still enjoy traveling for pleasure and adventure.
What I’m doing with my life
Professionally, I do partnerships for a large tech company. And I like it despite the ups and downs in the business. It gives me the resources, and the time, to pursue all of my other interests :)
I’m really good at
thinking on my feet, figuring out things, math, networking (professional, social and technical !), and salsa dancing.
The first things people usually notice about me
my smile (though lately, that's become the second thing ... .you'll have to guess the first !)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Economist (ok, not really a book); HBR, Michael Porter (yes, it's a book).
James Bond movies; "Bourne" movies, Eat/Pray/Love, 16 Blocks, ...
Law & Order; 24, The Shield, Voice, Jay Leno,
Latin music - Aventura, Ruben Blades, Tito Puente, Mana, Latin Brothers, Marc Antony, ....; Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Colonial Cousins, Police, Simon & Garfunkel, Beatles .....
Food - all kinds but healthy!
The six things I could never do without
Salsa dancing, yoga, meditation, clean shirts, sleep and red wine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
nothing (but it's hard to do)
On a typical Friday night I am
Out dancing or in the gym.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmm... depends on how well I know you.
You should message me if
Do you know that we'd get along amazingly well when we meet?
