Founder @ PlexStreet, Designer & Developer

Hi, I have been a Designer and Developer since 2013. The vision for my company Plexstreet has been evolving since 2013.

Since early age, I have been exposed to music, arts and sports. During my school days I was fascinated with musical instrument and spent hours with the ones I could get my hands on, whether it be Sitar, Guitar, Tabla or keyboard. I was also very keen on taking things apart and learn how they work from the inside.

Growing up, this interest in knowing how things work led to more interesting things. Google has been a loyal partner in that. 

I have invested hundreds of hours learning stuff that piqued my interest and one thing led to another, then I came across Open Course Ware by Ivy League Universities and MOOCs, Massive Open Online Courses. Courses posted on the Internet, curated by top universities of the world, open to the masses. That changed everything. I had access to world class education for free in the comfort of my home in my own time and speed. The next years I spent taking every course I can on topics of my interest, Learning never ends, neither does curiosity.

I want to share the knowledge I have gained over the years with the world and teach things I have learned over time, making mistakes, breaking and making stuff.
