I am a maker at heart; from developing challenging large-scale software to small weekend hacks and proof of concept ideas to tinkering around with my Lego Mindstorms sets - I love to build.
I work at SafeOuts India in the Android Platforms and Ecosystems team. I have a deep understanding of the Android graphics and camera stack. I have worked on hard problems such as real time stabilization on Android, and have created a graphics library for custom rendering to multiple surfaces, applying filters, and streaming.
I studied computer science at MDU.
One of my biggest side-projects is Friendlychat, an Android application I developed from scratch. I designed the logo, collated the content, structured the database and designed the REST API. I contribute to open source occasionally. I've contributed heavily to Miwok, an Android launcher with an indea to teach miwok language, and have also open sourced a personal project I developed during my university days for learning native miwok on Android.
I'm a fanatic student, I'm learning to speak Japanese, and am an active blogger, where I write about my work, travel and side projects. I'm extremely enthusiastic about life, believe that life is too short to work on things that don't interest you, and I'm always on the hunt for learning something new.
