My self-summary
Gentleman scholar preparing for the apocalypse.

Born in India, educated in the States, and living in Mexico, after all the languages, foods, and cultures I'm not even gonna attempt to 'make sense of it all'.

I travel often and have some good stories. Get a few drinks in me and I'll entertain you with tales of military coups, cultural impressions, and ancient Buddhist hamlets.
What I’m doing with my life
Software engineer. Trying to live with integrity. Exploring consciousness. Creating my personal language. Sculpting sound - if you want to make (loud) music, let me know! Sketching a play. Hackathons. Embracing the future.
I’m really good at
Abstraction. I'm also not bad in the kitchen.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm omnivorous in my interests. Beginning a sentence in one language and ending in another. Playful yet prone to lapses of contemplation. Fearless in front of authority.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lolita, The Magus, Neuromancer, Snow Country, The English Patient, Naked Lunch, The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon, The Brothers Karamazov, Upanishads, Maldoror, Rayuela, Tao Te Ching, tons more

Film: Luis Buñuel is my favorite director.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Floating World, what is becoming of America, a(n)esthetics, irony, chance, ecology, how to show more compassion to creatures great and small, gender, becoming a better educator, psychoanalysis, jouissance, the heartbeat of the earth, eros and agape, cryptocurrencies
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a film, working, jamming on drums, dancing with friends (usually inebriated), smoking hookah, reading a novel, fleeing the country
You should message me if
- you are a literate lady down for banter over chai or booze.
- you'd like to watch a film in the theater (cell phones/laptops are no good for cinema!)
- you want to make music (I've got a drum, two guitars, bass, banjo, sitar, piano, conga in my house).
- you want to meet a cultured person of substance
