  • What's your favorite type of food?

    My favorite type of food is Indian food and/or sushi. My favorite meal is a good spicy Indian curry with mango or mint chutney and garlic naan. In Dubai, there’s a place called Ravi’s that served the best Indian/Pakistani food I’ve ever had!

  • What's an ideal day off look like to you?

    Doing absolutely nothing other than watching movies, reading, and listening to music.

  • What's your favorite vacation spot?

    I enjoy going to secluded places with good company. My favorite vacation was probably when I went to a small cabin in a big forest by a lake outside of Voronezh, Russia with a small group of friends. Word of advice though, the trains that go to smaller towns in Russia are not the safest. And that includes the police working on those trains.
