About Me

“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt

“Hi! Welcome to my page! I am Full stack Webdeveloper. I started my journey as a Biochemist and worked as researcher for National Institutes of Health for 4 years in Alzheimer's research.

My soul however searched for more creative field where I could express myself with basic starter culture of a laptop and experiment on wider canvas. Coding bug bit me and I havent been the same since. I got formally trained through 3 month full-immersion Coding bootcamp, Coding Dojo, DC(2016) and I am now all game to enter the coding world!”

I especially love Algorithms and am always up for and to give a challenge. My dream job is to work in diverse team which makes application driven innovative software which is simple and accessble.Besides coding I like travelling, adventure sports & photography.
