Thanks for visiting my profile.
It is impossible to describe one's life in a few lines but please bear with my attempt. I grew up in Hosur near Bangalore, completed my undergrad from College of Engineering, Guindy and my Masters from Rutgers University. Currently, I work as a Software Engineer for Uber in San Francisco. I am the only son to my parents who are well settled in Chennai.
Tamil is my most fluent language, followed by English. I also speak moderate Kannada and Hindi.
Friends describe me as moderately funny, easy-going and helpful.
Talking of hobbies, I read quite a bit. I particularly enjoy books on psychology, poverty alleviation, environmentalism and historical fiction. Among my favorite authors are Thoreau, Hawken, Schumacher, Sainath, Valmiki and Mistry.
In the summer, I love to go on hiking/backpacking trips to new places. Apart from hiking, I also like long distance cycling (admittedly, I don't do it as much as I used to).
Regarding music tastes, I enjoy both Carnatic and Hindustani music. Personally, I learnt to play the Mridangam for about 10 years up to Arengetram level. But I am terrible at it now:) Among my favorite musicians are Madurai Mani Iyer, TM Krishna, Nikhil Banerjee and Hariprasad Chaurasia. I also adore AR Rahman.
I try to meditate regularly and firmly believe it has helped me become a more empathetic person.
I am very passionate about finding and working on impactful and efficient ways to improve human lives. For a couple of years, my friends and I were running a reading project at a Government School in Chennai to improve children's reading and critical thinking through story books. We started with 15 students and eventually were working with 60. Currently, I mentor a refugee child through a program at work.
My long term career goal is to become a social entrepreneur. Thanks for reading and good luck with your search.
