About Me


Hay que ver para conocer y conocer para ver.


**Please only send me a surfing request if you have references**

Soy una persona muy alegre :-) Me encanta platicar con personas de todos tipos para entender mejor la vida. Tengo raíces de la India pero nací en California. Sin embargo, me apasionan todos lados del mundo y quiero vivir conociéndolos.

I like good food, good conversation and good travels. I hope to meet new people and learn of their life experiences.
I was born and raised in California, to immigrant parents from India. I always loved traveling and the outdoors ever since a young age. I was a student in San Diego--one of my favorite places in the world. I love California but I want to see more of what the world has to offer.

I'm a Harry Potter fan. My favorite quotes from the series:
"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"--Dumbledore
"In dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let them swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud."--Dumbledore

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been to Torres del Paine in the south of Chile and loved every minute of it. I also saw the Taj Mahal as a child and the memory is still very vivid for me.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a teacher by profession but I learn more than I teach. I love dancing and would love to share that passion with others.
