About Me

There are many things to say, I am an engineering graduate who loves to hangout and make friends, know about them and their countries. I left my job in one of India's best digital marketing agencies and now I work as a freelancer and build my project @chaioffee into a company/community. I had to shift back to Gujarat because of the whole pandemic. 🤞🏻

In short, I was a computer engineering who then worked as a video editor, animator in an advertising agency and is now a freelance creator ( photographer, video editor, video grapher, storyteller) who edits videos for a living while continuing to build my passion project in the form of an Instagram blog that posts picture stories which helps improve my story telling skills. (I am sure you would love it on - Instagram: @chaioffee). Also, I can cook a little too :P. But, more importantly, my Chai is Couchsurfing famous ;)

Also worked in an organization that goes by the name AIESEC which is world's largest youth run non-profit organization and hence have quite well experience with people from all around the world. Text me up and I will try my best to find you something worth your time. :)

Also, if you can make out from my references, I make amazing Indian chai. So, all in all you would definitely have a crazy experience over my place ;).

You liked my bio:
Well then you would definitely love my podcasts with the Couchsurfers that I do.
Just look for 'Chai with Chaioffee' either on Apple podcasts or Spotify and you have got yourselves a treat to listen. 💜

P.S: Incase, I am unable to host you, I would definitely love to stay in touch with you over Instagram.
So, add me up there (handle - @viraaalll) and send me a DM.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Honestly I love helping others. Let's just say whenever someone asks for any help i try my best to provide them atleast with some. More importantly, I love meeting new people, interacting with them, understanding various cultures. And since I plan to travel sometime soon, these interactions would definitely help me a lot in viewing countries and their cultures from a different perspective. Moreover, every person has a story of his own. Be it a success or faliure and I would definitely try to inculcate those on my Instagram blog, which I have been doing.

Interests

Just like people I have tons of intersts which i can never define in this small place. But some interests other than the ones mentioned above are occasional reading and going out with friends to play football and learning any creative softwares.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music : I don't have a specific genre, I listen from Kishore Kumar to Arijit Singh and Elvis Presley to Calum Scott. Whatever seems soothing to my ears, I listen to it.

Books : I have read a few. Mostly self-help sorts but not always. Few of them include : The Alchemist, Leaders Eat Last, Start with Why, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck, You can win and a few other incomplete ones. (Probably got distracted :P)

Movies : This thing i can never define. So if you have any recommendations, shoot ;)
But Pixar movies are love. (Also Ratatouille is idk why but one of the personal favourites)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

So I haven't travelled very much. Mostly travelled with family that to at religious places. But I assure you you won't be bored with my stories.
I remember taking a Brazilian AIESEC intern to my hometown during the kite flying festival. It was just 4 days, I had hardly interacted with him before that and it was an impromptu plan. But the way he blended into my family and friends and the way he loved each and every moment of his efforts to fly a kite into the colourful just was a lovely sight to watch. Her still there everyone in my family and most importantly my grandfather with whom he had a really special bond. So sorry I tend to write a lot too sometimes :P

So yeah, feel free to drop a text and hangout.

Teach, Learn, Share

My friends tell me I speak a lot, and good at giving motivational/pep talks. That is clearly visible on my Instagram blog. But again, I don't totally believe them, as they talk through their perspective of me, but surely you can hangout with me sometime and find it for yourself ;)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Well I can't promise the kind of experience that you have because that will always be of your own. But I can most certainly promise you that you won't regret meeting me or dropping a text because I don't want you to just stay and leave. I want you to feel at home. So, all I can offer you is my hospitality, and all then I would always hope you have the one of the best experience in Mumbai.
