I’m a creative problem solver with a wide range of interests. Be it playing with audrino, making a new dish, hiking up the hill or making a video, I keep learning via practice and experimentation.

My ultimate dream is to commission a public park, where I intend to pursue Silviculture and continue conducting my experiments.
