I enjoy a simple life with an adventure and thrill seeking side. For the very reason, I am often outdoors: climbing, motorcycling, biking or just walking. I like NOT owning a lot of things and believe that a simple life is a relaxed and happier life. Practicing meditation is a big part of my life now, having seen the benefits and the peace it has brought.
Often I let myself drift into a state of day dreaming: painting pictures in my mind.. of flying through the galaxy and universe, of bringing a smile on someone's face, of running through savanna grass, of immersing myself in a different culture.
Professionally speaking, I build software at a startup in San Francisco SoMa... it fulfills my (some would say nerdy) curiosity and interest in understanding how things work and building things.
When, I am not doing that... I am usually drinking coffee, rock climbing, biking, reading, or attending interesting events in the city. I have also added motorcycling to the list in that past year. And of course, all these activities are best enjoyed when hanging out with friends.
I also have a deep interest in meditation, buddhist philosophy and what it means to lead a happy life. Hence reading, practicing meditation and just 'sitting', account for several hours per week from my time.
Anything except fast food (chipotle excluded). One of my goals in life is to taste all the cuisines before my gastric powers wane. Though, I'll always have a soft corner for Indian food.
Non fiction is what attract me the most, unless it is an exceptional science fiction. Currently, the top of my bookshelf is occupied by meditation, philosophy and computer engineering books; and some science magazines. I do indulge in an occasional batman comic though :)
I am heavily into symphonies and instrumentals. Hans Zimmer is my favorite music composer and SF Symphony is my favorite event to go to in the city. Besides orchestra, I really like old rock classics and any music that can make me smile.
Documentaries: I enjoy learning and growing a bit as a person every day. I have watched countless documentaries; from astrophysics to political, and keep searching for more.
Compassion & kindness
Family & friends
A bicycle (and now a motorcycle)
Humans, cultures and the next motorcycle adventure.
How to help people and make a difference.
Where did I leave my phone?
I could be anywhere: a restaurant or a bar with friends, or the climbing gym, or coding ruthlessly in the office, reading or watching documentaries at home. Or simply sitting for meditation.
Most importantly, if you're a nice and genuine person. :)
