Interest

Music has always been an inspiration as I spend my leisure time for live acoustic drumming performing occasionally for several local shows. I am also greatly interested in the environment and our social community and contribute whenever possible towards research and replenishment in the Maldives. Computer hardware and networking has always been a personal interest of mine and as a result has reflected my choice of career.
