I am a self-taught photographer, film-maker and designer. I also happen to be a self-taught full-stack web developer. I try to use some of these skills to craft multi-media story-telling projects.

I first started writing code in 1988. Over the years my work has straddled programming, design, education & publishing and culminated in my founding a digital media incubator & consultancy called Impellio. [More at my work website: impellio.com].

I first started taking pictures with an SLR camera in 1990. Over the years I have done commercial photography assignments for advertising agencies ranging from cars to switch-gear. I have taken on commissioned photography and film projects from commercial media, international bilateral agencies, and not-for-profit organizations.

I am involved in multiple long-term projects, but I am happy to work on commissioned multi-media assignments. Drop me a line if you have an interesting project for me.

This blog is mostly about my multi-media story-telling projects, and some occasional blogs. My work — programming, design and publishing — website is impellio.com.

More about me, if it interests you:

According to the best scientific evidence I am a Human, with somewhere between 1 to 4% Neanderthal DNA. Which means that some of my forefathers (or foremothers) made babies with someone outside of their species. Let me reiterate, not outside their gotra, caste, or religion, not with someone who came from a distant country and spoke a different language, ate smelly food and looked weird. They fell for someone from a different species altogether. Think Orangutan, kind of. Yes, seriously. Look it up, all non-Africans have somewhere between 1 to 4% Neanderthal DNA .

In honour of my Sapiens and Neanderthal ancestors I try to be open-minded towards my fellow earthlings. So I am fine with those who love dogs, and those who eat them. I am fine with dogs that lick and dogs that bark; dogs that bite, I try to avoid. I am fine with LGBTQIA, and I am fine if you add a few more alphabets at the end. I am fine with people who chant, self-flagellate, mediate, or pontificate about stupidity of belief in god. I am fine with those who do drugs, money, religion or sex for pleasure; or for pain. I am fine with people who travel to find meaning and those who travel to lose themselves; and also with those who stay forever rooted. I am fine with those who are searching for truth and those who are hiding from it; and those who profit from obfuscating it.

As you may have noticed by now, I am kind of fine. Hope you are too!
