Who am I?

HELLO,

I'm a 28 year old guy living in Mumbai, India. I left my job in 2017 to become a full time freelancer. Dedicated and passionate towards my craft, I always try to learn new stuff be it related to games or tech in general. In my free time, I like to read, watch Twitch live streams & play games on my Xbox One.
I enjoy the comfort of my home and work solo most of the time with Google and Stackoverflow as my best friends. However, I'm planning to open up my own studio in the future. This will allow me to work in a team to serve my clients and simultaneously work on my own IP.
Games in general have always intrigued me ever since my childhood. I used to play a lot of DOS games transitioning to the PC made by AAA studios in the early 2000s.
I believe that games are just small part of a much larger domain, that can have a significant impact on people's lives. Apart from games, I'm also interested in AR/VR, graphic computing, IOT, and mobile computing.
