About Me


Live life to the fullest! Follow my passion for photography and traveling!


Originally from India, I moved to USA for grad school in Texas. Its been 5 years now since I made that switch and I am currently working in a Cambridge biotech company trying to cure/treat cancer. I would rather spend every minute of my day traveling and exploring places while trying to capture these moments with my camera. Hopefully will be planning a RTW trip soon.


Keep it simple. Pay more attention to the simpler things in life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am trying to get started in the CS community.


Met up with a whole bunch of CS'ers from Boston and Portland Maine during the CS Portland Invasion 2010. Surfed with Sophie and Travis on their sail boat!


Photography, traveling, hiking, camping, rafting, nature, live music, animals, my guitar (learning).

Music, Movies, and Books

I love foreign movies, documentaries and indie films. My current favorite film is Into The Wild. Everything about that movie just appeals to me. Any kind of music works for me....well maybe not country and classical. I am a history buff when it comes to books. Also like books about traveling and non fiction.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1.Hiking through tiger country in the Periyar Tiger Reserve, Kerala India
2. Visiting the Taj Mahal
3. Hiking Angel's Landing with snow covered trails at Zion National Park
4. Staring at the starlit sky while laying on the rock cliffs of Acadia NP
5. Roadtrip through Zion, Bryce and Grand Canyon National Parks
