My charity: The Washington Humane Society. My three dogs – Chloe, Corbin and Cooper were all adopted from their shelters.
My gym: Sports Club LA. However, it could also be considered my charity since my membership dues have been more of a donation lately…
My home: A quaint, historic two-bedroom house on Dumbarton St. NW, perfectly situated on a charming and quiet block in the heart of Georgetown’s shopping, dining, and bars.
My cocktail: Bourbon and ginger
Blog-du-jour: FishbowlDC is my “blog every jour and all jour.”
iPod track on repeat: I am a serial song repeater – the track I’m currently wearing out is Easton Corbin’s “A Little More Country Than That.”
Sports Team: Thanks to Mark Ein and the Washington Kastles, I got hooked on tennis in 2008.
My cologne: I wear CLEAN “Men.” It’s light, fresh, and uncomplicated.
Where to find me on a Friday night: After a week’s worth of events and obligations, I generally take Fridays to decompress. If it’s not “Tivo and Vino,” it’s a casual dinner or drinks at a friend’s home.
My indulgence: Java Green Eco Café. I’m a vegetarian but I have an obsession for mock meat.
iPod track on repeat: “Down” by Jay Sean. My business partner Kunal Shah and I have been his booking agents for the past six years, long before he made it big in the U.S.
Sports team I root for: The Redskins (as hard as it is to admit right now). I was born and raised here, so rooting for the Skins is in my blood!
Where I vacation: Sri Lanka. Yes, I’m biased given my heritage and the fact that it’s a big chunk of my job (as a lobbyist for the Sri Lankan government). Trust me, it’s the most beautiful and amazing place I have ever been.
Personal hero: My dad is the reason I became a lawyer. He is an immigration attorney who has dedicated his life to helping others.
