About Me

A bit about myself:

I am a budding sailor, an inventor and an entrepreneur, I design products that make surgeries safer.

Fond of bathroom singing, puns and lame jokes.

I often travel around the world finding ways to fit my work into it and get to meet people around the world!

I hope to make my life a collection of great short stories.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My dream is to go around the world some day in a sailboat and make friends and memories along the way!


A beginner at exploring healthy lifestyle choices, clean food, yoga and spirituality.

Activities in and around water are food for my soul - swimming, water-polo, scuba diving. Looking to learn freediving and sailing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Set out from home to travel around India in an electric vehicle.

Created a product out of an idea that is now making a real difference in surgeries.

Trekked the Rupin Pass in the Himalayas.
