I am Vikram, A simple guy: tinkerer, swimmer, social worker and world traveler. I write about my day to day experiences in this blog and hope to send a positive message.
- I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon. I research technology to support social change. Although it’s a doctoral program, I am not a real doctor.
- My hobby is long distance swimming and has had the good fortune of raising money for charity on several occasions through my swims. Although I have been practicing for 10 years, I know only freestyle.
- Lastly, I am a good babysitter. I have had the fortune of playing and learning from children from across the globe. I also help teach children Kannada at SV temple in Pittsburgh. I try to be useful in my small way whenever possible.
My friends from undergrad call me Munday. I was termed so gullible, dramatic person. My blogs reflect the simplistic worldview of my daily adventures as I travel the world.
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to say Hi or give me feedback on my writing.
