What Can I Say About Me?

  • I was a Graduate Student in Computer Engineering at UCSD. I was doing my PhD there but I decided to work and so I ended up joining Amazon.com after I finished my MS in July 2006. Here is my resume.
  • I love to travel to new places, I love to go out to camping and hiking trips and long drives. I love being alone surrounded by nature.
  • I love Computer Games. Mostly I like RPG, RTS and FPS genre games.
  • I am trying to learn Salsa these days. That is an awesome experience.
  • I love puzzles – a lot (If you have some, do not hesitate to send it to me).
  • I try to play Cricket a little too and I also have played a couple of matches in Southern California Cricket League as well (and hoping to play more in future)

Some of My Goals for Next Year

  • I want to go to Europe for a month long tour – and cover all the interesting places there.
  • Go to Africa – if it were in my control, I would have the Africa tour before the Europe tour.
  • Take flying lessons and get a pilot’s license.
  • Skydive (at least once)
  • Start photography semi-professionally
  • Go on a cruise to Alaska and spend a few days in Denali National Park.
  • Learn Skiing and do a lot of it in the mountains in the coming winter.
  • Visit the holy trinity of canyons: Zion, Bryce and Grand Canyons.
  • … and many many more things….

Apartment Expense Manager

Consider this situation: You are living in an apartment with two/three other people and you share the expenses (grocery, electric bill, rent etc) with them. Sometimes you do the grocery, and X pays the rent, and Y pays the cable bill etc etc. Sometimes it becomes a little tedious at the end of the month to calculate who owes whom money and how much.

Words of Wisdom:

Thou hast most traitorously corrupted the youth of the realm in erecting
a grammar-school; and whereas, before, our forefathers had no other
books but the score and the tally, thou hast caused printing to be
used, and, contrary to the king, his crown and dignity, thou hast
built a paper-mill.
-- William Shakespeare (1564-1616), King Henry VI
-- Act iv, Sc. 7
