About Me

I have a bit of a complicated story, having worked on 4 startups on 5 continents.
My LinkedIn has an abridged summary of that story:

And the last 1.5 years I've been in Bangalore, India growing my startup

I used to be very active on CouchSurfing, but unfortunately due to work and sensitive housemates, I haven't been able to host folks. I have a strong sense of guilt about that.

None the less, if you're up to something interesting and you're in Bangalore, please hit me up.


meet people


I love learning and experiencing new things.
I'm a couch surfing junkie.


I take from both the logical positivists and the phenomenologists, it's valuable to both model and experience reality

couchsuring if about destroying your preconceived notions

kill people with kindness

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS has given me the opportunity to meet the type of people I want to know. I learn so much through conversation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

the moon hanging over Santorini, illuminating the entire island

backpacking for a week on the Appalachian Trail, mid Vermont to northern Massachusetts; the experience of being completely removed from society

standing at the edge of an Andean mountain watching the clouds envelope the surrounding mountains

literally stuck in an ocean of Czech people during the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Prague

Galapagos islands

watching the sunrise from a hot air balloon over the great Serengeti
