About Me


To make like-minded friends who are interested in sharing experiences, partying hard and tangential conversations!!!


Fun, easy going and impulsive!! Currently work as a hospital doctor in London but always likes to take time out to explore the world and make new connections!

Love to talk about anything and everything and have an eclectic range of hobbies, passions and interests!


One should not stress over things that are out of one's control; instead learn to appreciate the things you take for granted..

"..What happens is not as important as how you react to what happens.."

"..enjoy the journey, not just the destination.."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used CS quite a lot in 2008 when I went to work in Mauritius for my medical elective - found it really useful and actually had a lot of fun with the people I met!


Dancing, medicine, business, tangential thinking, good music, good wine, Bikram yoga, conversing!

Skiing, Rugby, Cricket, SCUBA, Liverpool FC
