I consider myself to be a multi-talented person interested in a wide variety of things. On one side, I'm a technology freak who loves gadgets and blogging whereas on the other side, I also deal in minerals. Creative, analytical, task-oriented, trouble-shooter yet fun-loving is how I would describe myself.
