About Me 👋

I’m a software engineer by trade, occasional writer, and recovering musician from Bombay, currently living in The Netherlands.

My day job is at an Amsterdam-based eyewear company, where I work to keep the orders coming in, payments processed, and customers happy. It mostly involves writing Ruby code; I cannot imagine nicer employment.

I love to read, with an interest in history and geopolitics. I care deeply about human rights, global equality, and how the events of the past continue to influence our modern culture and societies.

I’ve been an amateur musician since an early age, and consider myself a decent guitarist and singer; results vary. I once harboured ambitions of touring the world with a rock band, but now remain content with taking my acoustic guitar to the local park and jamming with the birds.
