This is my personal blog covering all the major facets of me.

My life revolves around a few topics and as such, I've separated the blog into those categories.

  • Blues is my music.
  • Bush is my getting back to nature.
  • Commentary are things that I feel like writing about.
  • Geeking are the tech related posts.

I'm currently on sabbatical and working towards achieving some goals. If you're interested, you can read more about it.
