*But would cry if you took my iPhone

I was born in Hyderabad, India and grew up in Freehold, New Jersey, where the Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen went to my high school.

I graduated from Boston University with degrees in Film and History and got the Hell out of dodge, to the sunniest place I could find - Los Angeles! I road tripped cross-country to get there and loved it so much that I went cross-country again a year later, just for fun.

After a brief stint working in Film & TV (on such unforgettable modern classics as Jennifer Love Hewitt's Ghost Whisperer), I trained on mixology and classic cocktails, going on to consult, manage and run beverage programs in bars and restaurants.

I have a Siberian Husky that I adopted back in 2010, and his name is Theodore Dogstoyevsky. He's the love of my life. He and I love adventuring together on hikes and camping trips. I'm also into snowboarding, although the terrain park usually leaves me with a sore butt, so I tend to avoid it.

When I have free time to just sit on that butt, I read nerdy things like A Song of Ice and Fire (I had a killer Jon Snow costume for Halloween) and play video games (currently Destiny). Back in middle school, I played a game called EverQuest and managed to sell my character on eBay for $1,200! (That's right, I earned actual American dollars playing a video game.)

I'm also into amazing food and count myself lucky to have worked in my career with some world-class chefs. I eat everything. Whether it's a taco truck or a ten-course prix fixe, just put it in front of me and watch it disappear.

Enough about me... How about you?
