About

 


My fascination with computers goes back to when I was 9 years old, a wide-eyed child, I remember staring in wonder at the machine that stood before me. I realized very quickly that the machine in front of me was not merely a play-toy, but in fact was a powerful piece of technology that could be used for a multiplicity of purposes, all concurrently. I also remember how spending my time coding HTML websites when I was merely 10 years old, a book that led to my building personal websites for others at age 11, and which eventually led to my understanding servers, and hosting by age 15. Thus was born, and cemented, a passion for computers, it was remarkable how amazingly useful these machines were, and more importantly, it intrigued me to learn just how many applications they had.

 

I have been enthusiastic & fascinated about using technology to make the world a better, safer and peaceful place. Although I am familiar with many web applications and technologies, I am in love with the intricate field of cybersecurity and the sense of awareness and responsibility it facilitates.

I am also excited about learning Astronomy, Astrophysics, Quantum Physics & Human Psychology. I have faced 2 system failures where I have lost my research which has only made me patient, stronger, curious and eager to do & learn more. "The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails"



To put simply: I'm a highly passionate geek & adrenaline junkie who loves to build, write & photograph things.
