About Me

I have previously lived in Singapore and that's where I got introduced to couchsurfing and hosted many guests. I hail from Chennai, the southern metropolis of India. I have had my education until my degree in Chennai and masters in the USA.

I am in couchsurfing to make global friends and learn their cultures.

It is interesting to meet variety of people to learn about them and what they do. :)

I am very broad minded, currently exploring and traveling with different people and cultures, and having a strong passion for travel. I am simple, kind and fun loving, and value relationships a lot. I am here to make connections with a variety of people, and cherish those global friendships in the long run. During travel, I have met people and still have touch with them in facebook!
