Non serious stuff
The picture on the right pretty much sums me up outside work. Yeah, that is me, paying tribute to Lady Gaga at MIT museum. 

I like music of several sorts, can't pick a real favourite one.

Here is a shortlist of my favorite artists: INNA, Atif Aslam, Arjit Singh, Jennifer Lopez, Olitia, Roxette, Mahmut Orhan, Skrillex, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Akcent, Sean Paul, Rahat Fateh Ali, Lady Gaga, Ali Azmat, and Strings!

I can occassionaly dance, not very gifted at it though. The only thing I think I'm good at, is floss

​I have been shooting for some years now, still prefer to call myself a novice. I shoot portraits as well as landscapes, which I post more often than not on my instagram and facebook accounts. My usual gear includes a Nikon D500, a 4 lens kit, an iPhone, a GoPro, and/or a Mobius action camera. 
I absolutely love traveling (for free). I haven't been everywhere (yet), but wherever I have been, I have made the most of it! Below is my updated world travel map. Way to go!
Other avocations
I follow football more than any other sports. Being a Real Madrid fan, I'm mostly interested in Spanish league La Liga. However, I do follow updates from Manchested United in English Premier League, and Juventus in Italian Serie A. I play as a forward/winger, myself at an amature level. Messi or Ronaldo? Ronaldo!

Table tennis, badminton, and cricket are some other sports that I play in addition to football.  Recently, I have also developed an interest in NERFing (yup that's a thing).

​CS GO and EA Sports FIFA are the two multiplayer e-games I have been playing consistently since college. Spoiler alert: I can play the PC version of FIFA with a mouse, and also, my CS GO mouse sensitivity is always 3.5+! I have also played CoD and Dota2; not as frequently though.
