We are initiating this contact on behalf of our son.
Siddharth is happiest reading, writing, hiking, traveling, and exploring. He has cleared forest trails in New Zealand and Montana, worked relentlessly to help victims of fire as part of the Red Cross, and driven 3500 miles across the country for a friend. He is a gentle fourth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do who literally does not hurt a fly.
He has an MA in critical comparative texts from Claremont Graduate University and currently works at a museum. He is a joy to be with, especially when his face breaks into a mischievous smile. People of all ages, from all walks of life, are attracted to his insightful, gentle, polite, and respectful presence. He is a unique blend of the modern and the traditional, the classics and the comics. He is as much at home with the philosophical underpinnings of the Gita as he is with the backstories of Spiderman.
In his own words… I'm a passionately loyal, family-oriented, voracious reader, and animal lover who watches movies, writes stories, and loves to travel. I want to work to make the world a better place. I look up at the stars and marvel at the universe. I am looking for a friend and companion on this adventure of life, someone who will support me to make my dreams come true, someone who will take my support to make her dreams come true. Someone who wants to share a life, all our life.
