Sandeep has lived in Delhi, Dubai, and Toronto. Exposure to such vastly different cultures has allowed him to develop a very understanding and flexible demeanor. While he respects and values South Indian / Brahmin traditions, he knows that it is important to have an open mind and a modern outlook towards life. Sandeep is currently focused on his career, however; In his free time, he enjoys clicking photographs, watching movies, listening to some good music, and exploring the city. He loves dogs and will most certainly keep one as a family pet (be prepared =)). Sandeep's friends have mostly been from North India - consequently he loves chatting away in Hindi and English. At home he speaks in a blend of Tamil, English, Hindi, and at times Punjabi (with his Mom, who speaks about a million different languages - more on this as you get to know our family). He has a very friendly and like-able personality, and knows that it is as important to listen as it is to talk.

In his own words:
I love reading books especially on psychology, investment and evolution. I value being fit very much and I make sure I eat, sleep and workout right. I do engage my spiritual aspect as well by doing yoga/meditation every morning.
I was a national level cyclist and also a recreational half ironman Triathlete (Swimming/Biking and Running). After moving to Canada, I haven't been able to do it. I would love to get back sometime in the future.
I have a conservative outlook on life (more of a risk averse person) and have a huge list of people as my heroes. All of them have some characteristics in common: humble and wise. Just in case you are interested to know, some my heroes are: Harsha Bhogle, Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Howard Marks, Benjamin Franklin, Benjamin Graham, Rahul Dravid.
I have a MBA from Ivey business school, Canada. I am currently working as a senior consultant in Toronto. I am also an equity analyst for my school's value fund. Largely, I get along with people well. I find it hard to complain and I am largely a happy person. I am lucky that my genetic makeup is such. I will always try to live a modest life even after becoming affluent by myself. I feel modest upbringing helps one appreciate the values of integrity, hard work and be accountable for one's life. I believe this way of upbringing helped me stay off any kind of bad habits. Also, it made me accept everyone I interact with and be more compassionate.
I am currently in Canada and in the final stages of getting my PR approved. As of now, my plan is to come back to India after getting my citizenship. The reason is, there are a lot of advantages when it comes to holding a Canadian citizenship.
All the above points just highlight my good qualities but I am not perfect. I am constantly working on making myself a better person. I expect a similar mindset from my partner.
