About Me

ABOUT ME

Born in Agra, the city of the Taj Mahal, I spent my childhood in boarding school in the Himalayan Valley of Shimla. Life's strange, and university brought me to the cosmopolitan Singapore. Being in the midst of nature is a part of me, so I studied abroad for 6 months in ETH Zurich, and travelled and backpacked across Europe as much time and money would allow me. Now that I am back in Singapore working, nature beckons me time and again and I find myself on a plane to a new place.

I am a Android engineer based off in Singapore. I am an outdoorsy guy, hit the gym a couple of times a week. I like playing sports especially tennis and squash. I am up for a night out with drinks (and maybe unembarrassed dancing) and also a night in with beer and stories.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is too short to have any regrets.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to host people in Singapore as I live in a rented apartment and the owners can be picky. Nevertheless, I still hope to meet new people visiting Singapore or while I am travelling to share my experiences and learn from their invaluable ones.
