I have lived in and around Los Angeles for over 10 years now, after I moved to the US from India. Its been an amazing time, I have learnt, grown and decided that am not leaving!
I love my day job where I help translate Business Speak to Software Engineering and vice versa. Figuring out business problems, and providing software solutions to alleviate them is another way to describe what it is that I do everyday. Or just call it Product Management and consulting.
While one does not have to leave Los Angeles to experience natural beauty, the ocean, the ski slopes, ethnically diverse foods and such, over the past couple of years, I have traveled domestically and internationally to Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Fiji, Ireland, Amsterdam, Munich, Vienna, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome, Athens and Paris.
Staying active, and healthy is fun and I prefer to stay that way with activities like hiking, kayaking, swimming, skiing, motorcycle riding and many many more opportunities that LA has to offer. Otherwise you find me getting relaxing with a good book.
It does help that I love food and drink and I am always up to try a new place to eat, or a home brew of beer.
I've recently taken up meditation to exercise the mind, and live in the present and I am enjoying the process.
