NOTE : I'm offering stay for skill at SmallWorld, Koramangala. Please message and let me know how many days of stay you need and what you can offer in return.

From a young age, I was always a wanderer. I wanted to see the planet I was born on and sitting idle, be it in classroom or at work would bore me to death. So, after 5 years of 9 to 5, I broke up with the cubicle nation and started working remotely.

Love great conversation, connecting with inspirational and courageous people and creative work.

I'm on a quest to chase wonders and collect countries. Done with 91 and 104 to go.

Chris Guillebeau and Tim Ferris are my heroes.

Life motto : Don't hesitate to give yourself everything you ever wanted in life.

PS : I'm building an army of one million digital nomads to take over the world. Hit me up if you are a nomad or willing to be one. Let's do this together. 👨‍💻🌍


- Your 'I can' is more important than your 'IQ'

- Don't hesitate to give yourself everything you ever wanted in life.
