About Me

CURRENT MISSION

1. Set up a bamboo hostel for backpackers and fellow travelers by 2018 on the beach in Puri, Odisha (80% complete)
2. Set up a boutique hotel - 2019
3. Start my own FOREST. Yes, you read right. I said FOREST - 2020

ABOUT ME

Sarcastic, street smart, confident, successful & struggling, focused and ambitious (a little over the top). Been places, love adventures! I'm NOT driven by passion, but i AM inspired by people. I get the kicks when I watch the sun rise in the morning (there are nights I actually drive hours straight to the beach to watch the moon rise and set...and then the sun rise). A part of me has always had an unending desire to connect and understand people, their motivations, their eccentricities, and then to celebrate that understanding with a beer or two.

I was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. After 18 years there I moved to the US for university and then in 2007 decided to back to the Motherland (India) to get in touch with my roots.

Life sure as hell hasn't been easy; but I've come out with this new found respect respect for the beauty around me...but at the same time I believe most of it is highly overrated...simplicity is what grabs my attention.

I may struggle with life on a day-to-day basis, but I'm glad I have what I have.

PHILOSOPHY

The sun will always rise tomorrow and science will never manage to answer the infinite number of questions about the universe.

Some parts of our lives may be pre-determined, but the rest is decided by us...stay positive and positive happens. Don't bet on luck - its straight up probability.

Personal experiences play heavy on influencing my ideas and opinions.

It's ok to take pride in your achievements, but just remember that on the long run - these achievements are meaningless.

Religion and science can coexist.

Nothing is truly evil - it's just our perception.
