Summary

I am an optimist who has a fervour for sports and writing. Someone who understands TV production and it's audience. I come with an analytical bent of mind that adds up as an additional skill to evaluate and gauge the situation with a different perspective.

I have worked across various mediums and I like staying abreast with the latest in technology, sports innovation and current affairs. I am a voracious 'online' reader, a blogger, an opinion-maker, a part-time comic, a full-time geek, a workaholic who likes his space.
