I believe in giving my best effort to any work I am involved in.Β  Looking forward to scale horizontally as well as vertically in skills which allow me to build end to end architecture of things ranging from a feature to a full fledged product. Besides my career aspirations , I strongly believe in holding on to my passion for creativity and so I like to do photography, content-creation (videos, mashups) and music composition.

$2 was the first amount (as far as I remember) I made back in 2016, 2 years before graduation by selling my first photograph online.

Since then haven’t really made a lot via sale because surprise, surprise I was never active about marketing these.

Today after 5 yrs, one of my photograph got sold for $10+ and it’s a figure I wanted to attain for so long now . I mean the last one got sold for $0.21 πŸ˜‚ and the previous highest was around $6 (which btw Lenovo used for a post on their Instagram handle 😎 and edited a kid into it πŸ˜…).

P.S. - Calling this a side gig would be a stretch since its just random buy and sell where one or max two days in a year I get lucky.
