On My Own Time
What I do when I am not working? Well, I need to be honest here. My work schedule is really very busy like most others. I do support many production systems and perform frequent oncall duties. I spend most of my time supporting various clients, researching and troubleshooting the problems. I also spend a good portion of time towards learning new technologies and keeping myself up to date.
 
What I do after that?? I call myself "a Designer by Hobby". The reason is - after my work, I spend MyOwnTime towards my hobbies, such as Graphics Design, Photography, Music, Event Managment etc.
My hobbies were inspired by my passion for arts. They have been nurtured and brought to fruition through continuous support and encouragement from my wife and my close ties with various communities and individuals.
