About Me

Update: I'm currently a Teaching Assistant for the Big Data course at PES University!

I'm currently studying Computer Science and Engineering at PES University, with a strong interest in Databases and Distributed Systems. I build projects to understand the same. You can check out my tech side here, and also look at my proof of work or my github.

I like writing (to myself, to people, for people), reading (scifi, thrillers, space operas, mystery), and playing guitar (acoustic). I also really enjoy travelling and meeting new people.

For an insight into what i'm currently up to and what sort of content I usually consume, check out the gateway.
