I'm always in pursuit of a good story and storytellers. Occasionally, I attempt to tell one through write-ups, photos or physical computing projects. A good story for me is the one about human experiences and life lessons. My favorite storytellers are J. K. Rowling, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Bill Watterson, Maya Angelou, P L Deshpande, my mentor Sarah Krasley, and my yoga instructor Melinda.
