i have time-varying interests that i pursue for my own pleasure and sanity. 

earlier in my life, i spent many years learning and playing indian classical on the violin. i trained till my vishaarad (equivalent of a ba in music). in mumbai, i was part of an indian fusion band called bunty.

from 2011-2015, i was an avid kaggler and spent countless hours competing on kaggle. at one point, i was ranked 39 among more than 100,000 competitors from around the world.

these days i am learning deutsch and coffee brewing. ich bin noch gut in keinem.

occassionaly, i push myself to attain new heights. in summer of 2018, i summitted kilimanjaro. i am currently training for aconcagua under thegrittycoach
