My self-summary
I just moved to SF, making the switch to "real" life after spending many fun years in college.
I absolutely love music .. all the important decisions in my life have been decided by music somehow or the other .. I also really like technology, which is why I ended up in the Bay area! Check out my music and other projects at www.e7mac.com
I wanna make a ton of money really quickly and then spend the rest of my life making a real impact in the world.. obviously my hero is Elon Musk!
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved to SF for a new job at a tech startup.

For the last 2 years I was making computer-music and new-ways-to-make-computer-music at Stanford and before that I learnt guitar playing under the pretext of studying Physics somewhere in India.

I continue to build fun things and make music for concerts happening at Stanford. And I continue to do the Insanity workout as much as possible.
I’m really good at
Getting into accidents that injure my wrist and inconvenience my guitar playing
Guitar playing
Teaching people guitar
Convincing people that making music is not as hard as they think it is
Music technology research
Giving form to things that I imagine using technology
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

food - indian, thai, ethiopian, chinese, sushi .. have heard a lot about the food in the mission but haven't yet had a chance to sample it myself
Six things I could never do without
1. friends and family
2. music
3. goals (not the soccer one though that counts as well)
4. internet and accessing device
5. sports - soccer and american football - specifically manchester united, barcelona and the stanford football team
6. "karma"

guitar would usually make that list but i keep injuring my wrist repeatedly (in traffic accidents!) and having to take time off to let it heal.. hopefully i can put it back there soon!
On a typical Friday night I am
I was in college until recnetly so my typical Friday night is yet to be established
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
... and as I jumped over the wall and expected to land on the other side to freedom, gravity stopped working and I did not make it down. I then realized that my pants had gotten caught in the spikes on top of the wall that were supposed to precisely prevent people jumping across it. For a few moments while I hung there, I wondered if they'd call the cops ...
(probably the second most scary moment in my life - getting caught on the spikes on the wall while I tried to escape my high school girlfriend's house because her parents came back unexpectedly early)
