Apart from being a software developer, I enjoy playing video games. I recently discovered my knack for reading and I am also a novice guitarist. I enjoy playing badminton and basketball. I also enjoy reading and learning about finance, personal finance and capital markets in my free time.

I like writing technical blogs and newsletters. I sometimes spend time learning about new developments in the world of backend engineering. I would also like to contribute to open source soon.
