About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Health, experiences, wealth, knowledge, love and happiness

ABOUT ME

I'm keen on exploring cities in a very deep manner to understand a city's characteristics and how its people live and work. I'm a urban-geographic explorer and aims to creatively capture urban environments and urban human life. www.facebook.com/jtssingh www.jtsingh.com

PHILOSOPHY

Just do it. Evolve immediately. Create Massive Impact.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I try to meet locals and get to know their perspectives and views on life. I'm a very curious person and love getting to know people. I haven't been able to use couchsurfing for all of 2014 because of pressure of work...but I now plan to get back to using it sometimes as a platform to meet locals and creatives as I travel!

Interests

My favorite thing to do is explore lesser understood locations, for example last year I went to North Korea and you can watch my project here: https://vimeo.com/102051605 or http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/-XhB5Pfj1Vk/
You can also find my other works about revealing the nuances of the emerging world around the internet.

Music, Movies & Books

Growing up in Toronto the most multidimensional and multicultural city in the world, I have the propensity to experience all kinds of intercultural movies, music and books, no matter what the language, as long as its emotionally powerful and original.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Too many to list:
-Sky diving, mountain climbing, bun jee jumping, traveled to over 25 cities in China in just 2 years. Met so many beautiful people in China across all walks of life.
-I'm a rooftopper, (people who climb tall buildings and hangout on the cliffs of it.
-Presented at TED twice about cities, given lectures at conferences and Universities, which is crazy considering I was the worst student in human history.
