Adapting, balancing and optimizing according to what is needed to be done. Adapting to clients’ needs, balancing and optimizing for speedy deployment. Maximum potential from minimum resources.
In 2008 I started working as a freelance web designer specializing in Drupal and also provided content and article writing services. In 2009 I built websites that would pass all the internet compliance test from w3c adapting to google and Bing best practices. I successfully reduced the loading speed of the website by crafting website with minimum possible scripts. I’ve always been on a quest of creating automation and IT systems that are scalable and can be easily upgraded. This brought me to Drupal which is an amazing platform that had modular structure and incredibly powerful native modules, that could be used to build almost anything you could imagine.
Then, I had a setback, I never understood why my efforts didn’t speak for themselves. I realized that while I worked hard and with dedication for my clients, I forgot that I need to be marketing myself, and this was a big mistake, I suffered for it. But, when we fall off the horse, we get back on it. I have started working on my marketing skills past few years and now I am focused on improving my presence on the internet. I have amassed a lot experience with social media marketing, working jobs and solving problems, which I am using for my benefit and pass it on to my clients. I learnt typography skills, content writing, content marketing, and the most important of all the analytical skills to create a well performing social media marketing plan.
To know more about me, here is my curriculum vitae.
My experience comes from my mistakes and what I learnt from it, It is like what Edison said: “I found 2,000 ways of not making a light bulb.”
Today, I can proudly say that I have helped over 10 companies in the past 4 years in different ways to fix various issues that allowed a significant improvement in growth the way they desired. Three of which were built ground up with my help.
“Jack of all the trades, master of none, but often times better than a master of one.”

I have amassed experience to various degrees in all the fields that require to run a successful business. I have performed as a product photographer, fixed and maintained a Linux server, transferred domains, corrected DNS entries to fix SSL issues, repaired and fixed websites, edited videos and audio files, wrote blogs and articles for clients, fixed content by tweaking the language and style to suit the intend audience, wrote advertisement hooks for advertisements, packed orders ran as a courier boy to deliver my client’s order!
All this has helped me understand each and every aspect of a business, making it easy for me to provide the right solution with a significant success rate. Also, understanding how all the other cogs of business work, I can make it easy for all the people associated with the project because I understand most of their requirements as I have hands on experience with what they do. I prefer doing projects in Agile team, for fast turn around and smooth operations.
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools.
- Working software over comprehensive documentation.
