Game Designer. Creative Technologist. Educator. • he/him
I have a background in technology but a deep interest in art, culture and games. I'm interested in system theory, understanding the interconnected networks of systems that is the world that we live in.
I moved back to India to start a gaming parlour in 2003, which ran for three years. In 2007, I joined Srishti as a faculty to set up a course in Game Design. Those three years in Srishti opened my eyes to a whole new world of arts, design, culture, philosophy etc. The learning continues.
I'm trying to use my skills in coding to develop interactive works. I currently pay the bills by consulting with a few NGOs who are building wireless networking infrastructure in Wayanad, Kerala and another NGO based in Bangalore provides technology to the low-literates.
