Although an Electronics and Telecommunication Engineer, I didn't spend my childhood dismantling toy cars to figure out how they run, rather I was enthralled by words and spent much of my time with my head dug in story books. Writing came naturally and my first published words were for the Rising Stars when I was in grade 6. I have since worked with New Age, Monsoon Letters, Suite101.com and BBC Media Action. I am an avid music enthusiast and have profound interest in photography and travelling.
