Thanks for stopping by my profile. A few things about me, some details on my personal front, and professional front, and what I am looking for.
ME: My friends would say that I am sensitive, personable, and reliable person with a decent sense of humor. I like to talk (a lot to a select few), enjoy little everyday things in life such as sipping on a Tall Pike (extra points to who know what that is), taking long walks, trying to strike a good conversation, watching movies, and hanging out with friends. I love to travel, and try to touch three to four continents every year, and love to sample different cultures and cuisines. I have an adventurous spirit and I don't mind going outside my comfort zone (like trying Scuba diving without knowing how to swim!).
PERSONAL: I am originally from India, born and brought up near Bombay. However, I have lived much of my adult life (last thirteen years) in the US. So, in some sense I consider myself... more lucky to have sampled the best of both worlds, the cultural eastern values and the sense of liberty and individual freedom in western society. I love both cricket and American Football. I have three sisters and a brother, all settled in India. We are a very close-knit family, and I do make multiple trips to India every year to celebrate Eid.
PROFESSIONAL: I have been a researcher/scientist by profession, and am currently a professor in an engineering university in Atlanta. I love doing research, and love the process of figuring things out and communicating it to the rest of the world. I know that people with PhD are typically classified as the dorky/serious types, but I will be happy to change your perception over a cup of coffee or dinner ;-)
WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR: I believe that life is not about possession but about experiences. Life is meant to share, and as the saying goes, sharing multiplies joy and divides sorrows. I am at a stage where I am looking for that sharing partner. Someone with whom I can communicate, someone who has a good sense of humor (and who can tolerate my sense of humor ;-) ), someone who can balance both eastern values and western values, someone who wants to live every moment of life and has a zest for trying out new things.
