About Me

Smart,intelligent,handsome,witty..an all round superman! I wish :)
I enjoy my thrills and let others enjoy theirs. I respect and appreciate privacy. I am not religious nor spiritual. I am an Indian by birth, schooled in Dubai, college educated in Kerala(India), worked in a couple of cities and presently working in Hyderabad.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am just looking to help travelers by providing them a place to stay, help them find their way around and let them be as comfortable as possible in a new city.


I used to ride an Enfield Thunderbird 350cc, then an Enfield Machismo 350cc, an Atlas Totem, and then a Honda CBR 250cc and rockrider 5.1. Four wheels carry the body, but two wheels carry the soul!

I am a licensed paragliding pilot. In reality, i pee my pants whenever i attempt to fly.

I enjoy swimming and miss being on a beach almost everyday.

I have done a lot of trekking in Karnataka and the Himalayas, and am always on the lookout for trekking partners.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music : MIA, Mumford and sons, Kid rock, Kings of leon, black keys, adele, hank williams, johnny cash, noraj jones, motherjane, pink etc.

Books : crime and punishment, the brothers Karamazov, Shantaram, Simply Fly:A Deccan Odyssey, Catch 22, Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance, Da Vinci Code, Tipping point, the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One month long Hitchhiking trip from Bangalore to Sikkim, with the aim of finally seeing the Kanchenjunga peak(India's highest). Started the 8 day Yuksam Dzongri GoecheLa trekking trail,only to fall to chicken pox and give up on the second day.

On a more positive note, I successfully completed the Annapurna and Everest base camp treks in Nepal.
