Music

I am passionate about Carnatic vocal music and Western music, and professionally trained in both. Here are video links to some of my Carnatic performances:

A video of me performing Fantasie Impromptu for a competition is here. I also played in a jazz, blues and funk band during my undergraduate years. My undergraduate website contains a nostalgic recalling of these days. :)

Sports

I participated in AIDS/LifeCycle 2017, a yearly organized bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Participants bike 545 miles on a beautiful coastal route and I raised 3850 dollars for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. It was a mindblowing life experience!

I also enjoy skiing, hiking, leisure reading and writing.
