I am a thinker, learner, creator, an artist, programmer and developer.
Also an entrepreneur with an ambitious streak.

Life is too short to spend time taking the easy way out. I constantly look for problems around me to tackle them to leave the world in a better state than I found it in. The adrenaline rush drives me to work relentlessly through sleepless nights for hours on end. And I love every moment of it. My passion lies in software engineering, machine learning, and product design. I am currently working on Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision with Generative Adversarial Networks.
