About Me


Save money, travel the world, meet new people!


I am a musician trapped in a consultant's body!Moved to the US a couple years back, and started a new job in Chicago. Love the city and the blues bars here.
Originally from Mumbai, India. Grew up all over India and enjoyed traveling and living in different parts of the country.


You can only analyze your life in hindsight, so don't second guess every move you make.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was a member of CS back in Mumbai as well, and I hosted a few people back then. Never had enough money to travel, but that's changing now :)

I am looking to host and show people around Chicago (time permitting).I will also be looking for people to host me when I travel internationally.


I've hosted a few times back in Mumbai, but my first time was the best.
Hosted a couple of Swiss guys from Basel - turned out to be musicians, and we had similar interests. It was a great experience to host them, and they ended up visiting again at the end of their 3 month trip in India.
