I am intrigued by Elon Musk’s biography. It’s a spirited and riveting portrait of one of the most driven entrepreneurs of our time. I love reading biographies of inspiring people and their life journey. I truly believe that we learn the best lessons from real life heroes.

I am a huge fan of the Marvel universe, especially the Avengers! It is a great example of people from different backgrounds coming together to achieve a larger purpose. I love the sci-fi genre! It’s interesting that most of what is shown in the movies in the 1980s is now real technology. I am sure superheroes are not far behind.

Sports has always been an integral part of my life. I am a hockey enthusiast. In fact, I was a state-level player during college. It’s the perfect combination of skill, stamina and teamwork. I also love chess. Every game is different, and to win, you have to use everything in your arsenal – logic, strategy, memory and psychology. It’s the ultimate battle of wits and wills.

I love Mexican cuisine and enjoy their Paella more than the original Spanish version — it is spicier and soupier. The dish is served best at Border Grill in Mandalay Bay, Vegas in the US.

I enjoy travelling and experiencing different cultures, and my favourite is San Diego. It has pleasant weather all year round, the beautiful views of the Pacific and of course, the Torrey Pines North Golf Course. Another favourite is Herrsching Am Ammersee in Upper Bavaria, Germany; it is perfect for biking, hiking, swimming and strolling.
