I am a computer science major undergrad. I love reading docs, writing blogs, messing up with my computer,
and take pride in fixing it back.
I love working with different operating systems and am a keen learner in system and network security.
I am a
skillful killful developer, yet a curious researcher. I do a bit of UI fixing and mostly tinker around software loopholes. Some of my footprints:
