Fun loving friendly
Friendly, open minded, well travelled global citizen. Working in finance but my real passion is travelling. Travelling gave me the most valuable lessons in life.I love knowing people and exchanging views/ideas/experiences.
I live close to lake of Zurich, 20 min from Zurich central. I have a spare room available, though I may not be in Zurich always to be able to host. Please ask for the availability and I will be happy to host if in town.
My personal philosophy of life is to be honest, helpful,humble,kind and generous.Six main pillars of my personal philosophy that acts as guide rails for my actions:
1. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
2. What goes around, comes around
3. Love is not yours to give nor mine to take.But ours to recognize
4. Don't let your surroundings influence you more than you influence them
5. A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it is not open
6. Live life to the fullest and be mindful to enjoy small moments in life
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am quite new to CS but the concept is amazing- it's like travel benefits delivered at your door steps. By reading some of the fellow CS users testimonials, it's apparent that I will be able to make new friends and learn about diffrent culture by hosting travellers.
I plan to participate by hosting fellow CS, probably the best way to utilize my spare room.People from all over the world are welcome to my place.

Music, Movies, and Books
Type of music depends on my mood really though in general I like Jazz and Country music.
I am not a big movie fan, I enjoy watching suspense thrillers, action and old classics.
a book junkie really, read a lot of management and leadership books.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
1)Sleeping in Sahara and gazing at sky full of stars
2)Snowboarding down a unprepared black piste and hearing the snow crackling
3)Sailing in Caribbean
Teach, Learn, Share
It's a sweet positive cyclic loop- one learns to share and when one shares the learning grows further.
