About Me

On here again after about 10 years! I used to be here back when I was traveling through South Asia as a musician.

Now, I run an organizational consultancy to help teams operate more effectively. Would love to meet collaborators/co-creators! I'm also a vocalist of R&B and Sufi music, as well as a classical dancer.I love to jam and collab with others. More info at www.rimibasu.net!

Other than that, I'd like to meet generally interesting and kind people, broaden my horizons, and learn and grow everyday.


they would say i am gorgeous, majestic, a genius, and extremely modest...:P


i live to try to improve myself in both personal and professional spheres. to try to see the positive no matter what the circumstance is an everyday challenge, but i believe is the ultimate path to happiness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing has had an immeasurable impact on my life. I spent most of my 20s as a nomad and explorer, "searching for myself" through seeing the world. Throughout this journey, I can't express how many wonderful, kind, interesting people I met who shared their homes and hearts with me. I became who I am because of them! I see a better world being possible because of them. My best friends have come from this platform.
