About Me

I'm a graduate student at Vanderbilt University. In addition, I'm a musician who loves to experiment with various genres, and compose fusion pieces with instruments from around the world. I also love cycling, and would love to host someone who wants to explore the city on a bike!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My musical inclinations lead me to travel around, and I believe the best way to experience a new city is with the locals. I'd also love to host people with different interests, and learn about their cultures!

Music, Movies, and Books

My all time favourite piece of music would be Beethoven's 9th Symphony.
I loved Interstellar. My favourite books would be the complete Sherlock Holmes series, and some Shakespeare works - I enjoy reading his sonnets more than his plays.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Trained in Indian classical vocals for 17 years (I'm 22), then taught myself a few instruments from all around the world. I established and conducted my undergrad institute's orchestra!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Music! Name your genre, and I probably have something to talk about. Can walk you through the complexities of Indian classical music (I sing and play the Hindustani Bamboo flute), or relax with some good Jazz!
