About Me


Make people happy


I like to think life can only be understood by passion, and I apply this principle in my everyday so as to let the others feel it as well.

Said that, I am an Indian architect who has spent last 3 years traveling around the world in the pursuit for an answer through the lens of my camera:

There is a lot to learn, a lot to risk, a lot to gain...


"So much to do and so little time." (Me)

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” (Steve Jobs)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By couch surfing - staying with people and having people stay with me, and even if I cannot stay with them or they with me I can spend some time showing them around the town or have them for a beer or so.


Have surfed just a couple of times, but have quite a few people over who've stayed with me in Milan and Shanghai. I can say that it's an incredible person, since each of my couchsurfers were wonderful people, who've now become friends for life.
