I don't know how much of the below is true anymore. But I recently quit my job to start a game studio of my own. Was able to raise funds and we are working on our first title. As you can see that has somewhat 'defined' me for the time being as I can't seem to think about anything else but my start-ups and the games we are working and the things which can go on and on and on and on ..so yeah I'm pretty much occupied by that.
I believe in making the best use of my time. Always up for meeting interesting people and talking about anything and everything under the sun. I appreciate every conversation which can add to my understanding of the world and people.
And people sharing their experiences and learning-via-proxy is highly valued.
I'm driven, ambitious, straight forward and down to earth (Yes I'm awesome!). On the other side, I'm sarcastic and alot of people do not seem to appreciate that. I can tune out of things very easily ( a bad thing apparently! ).
I have lived and worked in Iran, Pakistan , Singapore and US. SO always up for meeting people with a broader world view and interesting experiences.
Oh and I don't use facebook at all. Only twitter, linkedin and okc (occasionally).
**Previously****I'd like to think I'm normal but then i guess normal is a relative term. I'm usually very happy-go-lucky with occasional phases of darkness and utter hopelessness at the state of Pakistan, world and many other things. I'm a realist but I don't think I have completely let go of the idealist inside me. In an ideal life I'd like to go on to do my doctorate and live out the rest of my life being a lazy professor ! The dream is still alive ! I like to read books but rarely get to finish one, have 2 unfinished ones and I hope to be done with them before the year ends ! EDIT: year ended and i'm not still done with the books ! Damn.
