What's my story?

I used to design and develop websites and webapps. In the worst way one could ever imagine. Then a car accident in March of 2013 took away my ability to use all my limbs - making me a quadriplegic. That's when I realized how horribly inaccessible my past 7 years of work was to people with vision impairment, hearing impairment and cognitive disabilities. Now, I design and develop accessible websites and webapps. Because the Web is for everyone.

I also do other cool stuff. This includes procrastinating, drawing terrible stick figures on whiteboards, buying the most unnecessary gadgets on Amazon, and watching the Big Bang Theory. Sometimes, when I'm not doing the above, I do post-production for promo videos, play with Leap Motion, Raspberry Pi and Open Street Maps, drink frappucinos and dream of being at Old Trafford.
