About

Having been in the field of game development for over 10 years, my experience has enabled me to pursue my professional goals of extensive game development across different platforms and provide community support through various forums.

My development expertise lies primarily with Actionscript 3 with Adobe Flash and Adobe AIR on platforms such as Symbian, Android, iOS, Web and Set-Top boxes / Interactive TVs. I’ve also been working with the new web standards such as HTML5, Javascript and CSS. I have had the opportunity to produce and manage gaming projects with teams on the native iOS and Android platforms.

Learning and experimenting with new ideas and pushing a technology’s capabilities to the edge is what I strive for.  I enjoy designing great UI Experiences for content across multiple screens. My portfolio includes award winning games, a strong Community Support background through articles and conferences, and managing the Indian Adobe Mobiles and Devices User Group.

When not working on games, I like taking days off to watch movies, try new cuisines, travel to new countries and learn about new cultures and languages.
