I love technology and travelling.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I remember places by the people I meet and their quaint, uncommon favourites - the "best" falafel place in the city, that quiet corner in the fort, the ice cream place by the bridge. I've surfed a lot of couches and hosted wonderful people through CS, and I enjoy the sense of community with fellow travellers.
Living in a place for a few months to learn more about its history and its people is the kind of travel I enjoy. I like trying out different professions for short durations, farming being my favourite experiment so far. I believe in minimalism and mindful consumption.
At the moment, I'm trying to combine two of my passions - social work and volunteering, and my work in tech - to work on tech tools for the developing world.
Music, Movies, and Books
I like ambient electronic, indie, electro pop, classical, jazz, post-rock
I like movies by Xavier Dolan, Deepa Mehta and Krzysztof Kieślowski.
Oscar Wilde, Vikram Seth, Arundhati Roy, Theodore Dreiser, Victor Hugo, Sinclair Lewis and Dumas are some of my favourite authors.
