You can also find my resume here.

If you don't wish to read through the description, you can get an overview of my work through a nice little document I have attached at the end.

Over the course of my four years of college and the professional career thereafter, I have indulged in works of vastly different domains. I'm a passionate gift-maker and I like to make technolgically hardwired presents. Thus, most of my works are personally customized for people I'm grateful to. Being an autodidact, I believe any skill can be acquired if you just put your damn time in it. Interest is a mere catalyst.

I have divided my works in following categories along with corresponding timelines. Feel free to skip to the section which interest you -
