In my free time, I like to play with new technology services, gadgets, and also like to go on hikes. You will often find us walking the scenic California trails over the weekends.

Travel

Pratikhya & I love to travel. Here are the countries that we have been to – and plan to resume our wanderlust in summer 2017 once Neil is a little older.
