    Great passion for Programming. I want to develop, maintain and implement a quality experience in the world of programming and software development. Good communication skills, highly inquisitive and enthusiasm to learn, energy with the ability to multi-task and manage priorities to achieve deadlines. Dedication, determination, discipline, confidence and punctuality are my assets. I am keen to learn new technologies while also maintain good command over traditional tools and programming languages. I am also a writer, a graphic designer, and nature-lover. I am inspired by things that are around us where everything has a story to say. I am a person with crazy imagination, creates crazy stuff. It is not the technology that defines the achievement, it is the idea that defines it. Motto of my life is *Think Global, Act Local*
