About Me


Finding a reason to smile and laugh every day


I am a goody two shoes. Well not really, but I give off that vibe. Maybe it's got to do something with the goofy smile. Maybe it's the the lack of facial hair. But rest assured I do have an evil twin ;)

Born and brought up in a quiet town near the eastern Himalayas (the place where all the great tea is from..bonus points if you can guess my state) My people are renowned for their hospitality. Guests are welcomed and accorded the maximum courtesy a family can afford. I am here in New York to do a little bit of the same through Couchsurfing.

I live in a great neighborhood in Astoria. Its a 10 minute ride to Manhattan and less than 20 minutes to Times Square. I am been living in New York for a while now and have some favorite spots I could take you to. I can get you into most museums for free. Best Indo Chinese fusion restaurant/dessert place in the city? I have you covered. Can I see the Statue of Liberty and the Lower East Side lit up at night from a boat for free? Yes you can! Take me to that awesome bar with live rock music every night..I am your man.


A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.
