About Me

I recently took to world travel. I enjoy meeting with people from different cultures, exchanging stories, developing lifelong friendships.

I live in university town Princeton, NJ with my wife who is Food and sustainability champion and 16 year old son who is Public Policy enthusiast.

I am IT veteran of sorts. Did several IT Mergers and Acquisitions and Currently working as Senior Advisor PMO in Dell Technologies.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My trips are so short that there is hardly any time to interact with local people [which is big part of my travel]. I feel like couch-surfing could be a great ice-breaker in bringing our backgrounds and cultures together and opportunity to exchange our stories.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Into the wild, Hector and the search for happiness, The way. In fact The way inspired me to take up the Camino de Santiago trek. I might do that when I feel ready for it.

I listen to a lot of Bollywood music.
