About Me

I am the kind of guy your mother wouldn't want you to meet. Just Kidding!

Free thinker, Globetrotter, AIESECer, Animal Rights Activist, Dreamer, Non-materialistic, Couchsurfer, Hitchhiker.

If I could make everyone in the world watch one TED talk, I would make them watch

A few years back I came across a movie called Earthlings which changed my life forever! You can watch it for free on YouTube.

I am passionate about animal rights and finding solutions to issues that mankind faces. I enjoy dancing and partying! I am mostly agnostic, but Jainism and Buddhism inspire me a lot.


Do different things and do them differently. Thou shalt win! - my neurons

Measure your success not by the material possessions you acquire, but by what you give back to the world. - my neurons

Don't ever let somebody tell you that you can't do something. You gotta dream, you gotta protect it. Period! - Chris Gardner
