I am a Software Engineer and have recently graduated with a Masters in Computer Science from SVNIT, Surat, India. I enjoy software development in general and web-development in particular. I also enjoy teaching. I have taught courses on Advanced Java, PHP and Unix Programming at a college in Jamnagar, India which offered professional courses in Computer Applications. I enjoy learning new things. I get bored quickly and need to keep learning something new to remain motivated. I am currently attending a pretty challenging course on Cryptography at the University of Texas at Austin. I am a quiet person and spend most of my time updating my skills or sometimes reading. I am currently reading a book 'The Grand Design' by Stephen Hawking. I am also looking for challenging opportunities in industry in the field of software development. I am open to volunteering temporarily if I get to learn some new technology.
