About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To explore and challenge myself in every way imaginable and doing all that without sucking at my job.

ABOUT ME

I love challenging the fear on unknown so I end up doing a lot of stuff that I didn't do before. I like doing a lot of outdoor activities be it running, biking or just chilling out in the sun. I don't mind a beer or whiskey with good company. Mostly I like having fun and I have heard that I am a decent guy to hangout with.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe in being what I want to see in the world. I live to explore and learn. As OScar Wilde said "To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." So if I can just live right in this moment, I have nothing more to ask for.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had a few meet ups with people from couchsurfing. One of those was a camping trip in lake maria state park in Minnesota. It was a great experience to meet so many people and become friends instantly. Couchsurfing really helps in breaking the ice. Well as the slogan says "You have friends all over the world, you just haven’t met them yet."

Interests

I spend my free time in the gym, running or biking around Mississippi. I love music and Metallica, GnR, Coldplay, The Beatles and Pearl Jam are some that get me going. Sometimes I enjoy reading good books although since my Job involves a lot of reading, I usually get enough of that at work. Right now I am also giving a shot at boxing and guitar.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: The Beatles, Metallica, Guns and Roses, Bob Dylan and the list goes on.

Movies: Too many to list here but LOTR, Pursuit of Happyness, Forest Gump, Cast away are some of my favorites.

Books: Books: The new life, The kite runner, The alchemist, An unfinished life, Deception point.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Scuba diving in Key west Florida. Those coral reefs are just hallucinating. Hiking on the beautiful Himalayas in Manali, India.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to play Harmonica, cricket, languages Hindi & English, maybe some maths or physics. I would like to learn any new language or a new sport. Also we can talk about history, science or just random interesting facts.
