Finding a producer for my first feature film set in Goa!
I love traveling and meeting new people from all over the world...I'm warm, have a great sense of humor and am interested in the arts and music. Above all, I'm just a nice guy to know !
(My philosophy is best expressed by this beautiful quote I came across somewhere):
I SHED MY INHIBITIONS. MY FEARS. I TRAVELLED LIGHT !!!
I traded my stock options for a lonely planet.My cell phone for a compass.My briefcase for a backpack.
I took off.
I wandered in the company of tourists,travellers and a guitar as old as me.
I learned that people are good, strangers are fascinating. And that every journey reveals another.
I've lost track of time .And perhaps my job and my apartment...
But i have my compass and i know it's pointing me in the right direction.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Have hosted many travelers in all three places where I have lived in the past seven years - Bangkok, Goa and Mumbai.
Also surfed as a guest on several trips to Europe over the years - and met up with some wonderful people.
Travel, reading, music, movies, development, photography and making films
Music, Movies, and Books
I love arthouse cinema, but also enjoy the occasional Hollywood / Bollywood blockbuster
Love reading travel books - Paul Theroux, Pico Iyer. My ambition is to write a travel book; or make a travel series one day - soon!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Working as part of the creative team of Satyamev Jayate - India's biggest and currently most successful TV show, hosted by Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan
Crossing over a landslide just after it happened - because we had to get to the other side!
Taking ten flights in as many days - to shoot a documentary over four different countries!
Directing and editing a series for Portuguese TV - without knowing the language!
Visiting the house of Mukesh Ambani - who enjoys the distinction of being ranked the richest man in the world in 2007 (higher than Bill Gates and Warren Buffett!). I also shot interviews with him and his family for a project I was working on.
Teach, Learn, Share
Well, I can teach you how to use a video camera - if that's of any use :)
I can also tell all you want to know about India - and there's a lot to tell! Can give you useful tips on places off the beaten track worth visiting, and things to see that tourists may not ever know about !
And of course, I can also teach you some basic Hindi which might be useful while traveling.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Local information and guidance about Mumbai - sightseeing, food, nightlife...and secret places few know about :)
Countries I’ve Visited
