Hi! I was born and raised in India in a close knit family, pampered by loving grand parents and guided by relatively stricter parents to keep me balanced. I completed my Bachelors of Engineering (Electronics and TeleCommunications) from Rajkot, took up a job with Infosys in Bangalore, India and have been living on my own since then. I move to USA in 2012 and now I work as a software consultant for Verizon Wireless in Columbus,OHIO.
I have been working as a Software Engineer for almost 7 years now and absolutely love what I do. I have been lucky enough to work on projects that have kept me interested until now, so I do not feel the need to switch back to the field I graduated in (Electronics) and I intend to move forward on the career map in core Software development.
I have an elder sister who is married and is currently pursuing her PHD from the university of Maryland, USA. She is 2.5 years elder to me so we are more of friends now rather than siblings. My... more brother-in-law works for a finance firm in Silver Springs, Maryland. I have a younger brother who lives in India and is studying Engineering. My Dad's side of family is settled in India and Mum's side of family resides in London. I am close to all my cousins and we make it a point to hang out as time permits.
In my spare time, I like to hit the gym, swim and play tennis/squash(not an expert player but I look at it as a good alternative to gym :) ), watch movies, hangout with friends and family and like every girl - go shopping. I love roller coasters and adventure sports. In summer, I like to go for trekking/hiking.
I was raised in a Jain family but I am also a firm believer in Lord Shiva and I believe in personal independence when it comes to one's relationship with God.
My short term goals include - A trip to Alaska, Running a Marathon, Go scuba diving.
I am very talkative, hard-working, laid-back, straight forward and do posses a fairly good sense of humour.
My Partner Expectations - I would be the most compatible with someone who is honest, independent , understand the importance of education, outgoing, live life to the fullest and be a friend for life.
I particularly like people who understand and respect the importance of his partner's career and believe in sharing responsibilites/duties at home front.
I believe that two people can be partners for life only if they are friends first. If you feel we can "click", drop a "Hi" and we can take it from there on :)
Ours is an upper middle class family, originally from Rajkot, with moderate values. I personally have a liberal approach to life. My father is retired and my mother is a homemaker. I have 1 brother (unmarried) and 1 sister (married).
