About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living life on my own terms, and going to bed with no regrets every night

ABOUT ME

I love to write and I love to travel. I'm the author of a book about College Success, (soon to be out) do some seminar gigs when I'm in India, and in addition, I'm also a full-time student here in France. I like to work hard and party harder ;)

Having travelled so much, obviously one of my favorite things in the world is meeting new people, and connecting with different cultures.

Some of the most profound experiences I've had in my life were when I met a 20 year old Bolivian guy, eating breakfast next to my table in Florida; or when I met a 35 year old Swede on a train station in Stockholm; or when I met a 58 year old Tunisian man, while waiting for a bus in Nice. I open myself to the world, and the world's given me some amazing experiences in return.

As a result, I'm open to meeting people from anywhere in the world, no restrictions on age, race, class, gender etc...

PHILOSOPHY

I do my best to live my life with no regrets, and no limits.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Through a contact at university, I was asked by the President of Bolivia to write his biography. I didn't even know what Bolivia is at that time, but 4 weeks later, I went on the biggest adventure of my life - crazy parties with his son, meeting the top officials of the country, making friends with his bodyguards, and being featured in magazines. It was almost like a fairytale.

The book ended up not being published (because of civil fighting in Bolivia) but I had the time of my life : )

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm good at French and Spanish, perfect with English, and so-so with Swedish; so obviously I could help you out with that.

I can also teach you a little bit to write in my native language, Hindi (from India). With India, obviously comes all the delicious food and spices, which I have fair knowledge about, and I'd love to share that too!
