What do I do, really?


On the 21st of June 2020, I will be celebrating my 10th year in the IT industry. If you just met me and that happened outside the workplace, there’s a chance that you would find that mind-blowing. Not a lot of people can really identify me as a tech guy until I start talking about technology. People don’t normally get that vibe and I have a myriad of other interests I can talk about. But yes, I am a tech guy. And now that you know that, the next thing you might want to know is what I actually do.

For a glimpse of one of the most awesome projects I worked on, I am reblogging this special review.


I watched the movie with my nephew. He requested for it. Right from the moment I saw its trailer in one of those movie dates I had, I knew it was going to be cool. I’m a creative working in the tech industry; inventions fascinate me. I thought that was it, that it’s the only thing that will make it appreciable for me. But I was surprised.

It will get a bit nerdy from here. Brace yourself if you have to.

Wall Scrabble by Restoration Hardware http://hiconsumption.com/2014/11/wall-scrabble-by-restoration-hardware/ I suck at "competitive" scrabble.
