The geek on weekdays
I am a Freelance Web designer and developer residing in the beautiful city of Bangalore in India. Creating user interfaces is my passion. I have been developing web-sites since 2004, and I love to challenge myself with each new site I work on, by using something new, or developing a new technique to work on. Along the way I have become proficient in many web development and graphics softwares that assist me in my work.
A wanderer on weekends
I was born in Bhagalpur, but raised in mostly Kolkata. When I think back to my childhood, I was like most other children loved to play and have fun. We would make beds for the stray dogs from lying stones and used up torn clothes. In Summers I remember walking into a private garden with friends to enjoy some berries right from the trees. And I remember playing cricket till dusk would turn into night. But even in those times, I was drawn towards exploring the unknown. For me as a 12 year old, the unknown would be the adjacent block of where I lived.
I also love to explore, be with nature, travel to faraway places and learn about different cultures.
I have a wide range of skills that I use for web-development, including extensive use and knowledge of PHP, CSS, jQuery and HTML5. I also manage my own web-server (the one this site is on in fact), and administrate domain names for several clients through the process of my work.
I believe strongly in web standards, and standards based development. I try to separate content from function both in terms of the user interface and the back-end processes. This makes for clean, easy to maintain code, which can be understood by others should they need to see it.
