A child of immigrants, I made my first trip across the globe around the same time I learned to walk. And I guess you could say I never stopped traveling. I love being outside, especially amidst trees and mountains. Favorite places India, Nepal, Peru, Argentina, northern California.... When I travel I tend to volunteer, hike, or spend time in rural landscapes. That said, I love New York. It is home to me. There are few things I love more than running in the city through different neighborhood and brushing shoulders with strangers, maybe exchanging a smile. I like biking and walking the city too, getting to places on my own and seeing what life "connects the dots" of destinations. I'm a vegetarian. I tend to cook my meals, and they're generally simple. The palm of my hand generally substitutes for measuring spoons, so no two meals ever taste exactly the same. I love blues, funk, jazz, soul, afro and latin beats, and cheesy Bollywood songs.
