About Dilshan Pieris

I'm a medical student who tends to gravitate toward the arts. I enjoy singing and playing music, writing poetry, and creating visual art through paintings and drawings. I'm a big foodie; I love love love trying out new foods and restaurants. Lastly, I run a podcast called "Shoot The Ship" with my friend (shameless plug) where we hangout and chat with each other and guests - you can get to know me a lot better there.
