I’m a creator from Mauritius! I specialize in building beautiful cross-platform mobile apps.
Outside of work, my interests include cognitive science, reading, and hiking. For more about me, click here!
Here are some things I've created, accomplished, and lived through. For past experiences, here's my resume.
By writing on my blog, I share what I wish someone else had written for
me: novel ideas, undocumented experiences, and detailed guides.
For my personal website, I wanted to break into
development and build a static, fully-responsive page from scratch.
Technologies/Domains: Website Development, UI/UX Design, Figma,
I started designing the project in Figma. Over the course of 1-2 weeks, I explored different directions,
went through multiple iterations, and distilled the most important information I wanted to share.
decided on using parallelograms and vibrant gradients as the main design elements of my medium.
After many previous not-so-pleasant attempts at writing CSS, I doubled down on my research to make the
design-to-html process as painless as possible while preserving fidelity. I
considered Bulma and Tailwind, and chose the former as my CSS framework because of its completeness and
focus on responsive design. After teaching myself the basics, I started coding the design. In order
to not reinvent the wheel, I leveraged bulma-modal-fx and glide.js for modals and
After another week of continous coding, copywriting, resizing assets and debugging, I produced what you now
In 2018, I was selected as the first Grand-Prize Winner
from Mauritius for Drupal from 3550 students in Google Code-in, a global programming
competition for high-school students.
Over the course of 7 weeks, I completed 22 tasks that involved Programming, Design, Documentation/Training,
Outreach/Research, & Quality Assurance.
My most notable accomplishments were:
Creating Social Auth Reddit, Amazon, and Discord. Today, these modules have ~1000 combined downloads.
Porting Gist Input Filter and other modules to Drupal 8
Fixing various bugs/issues in Drupal Core and community modules
Creating new documentation for Social Auth Twitter among others.
Renewing Google Code-in students' documentation and migrating it to the new Drupal.org documentation
Designing a new logo for the Social Initiative project, attached below:
Thanks to my participation, I learned PHP, Drupal, Git,
and gained valuable insights into open-source programming practices.
As part of my reward, I was flown to Google HQ, San Francisco, where I got to attend talks by Googlers and
connect with terrific people all over the world.
Google Code-In was a major turning point in my life.
Currently, I give back by mentoring students, both online in the contest, and offline through workshops and
In 2018, I started Studento, a student-assistant mobile
app, as my entry for the National
Science Quest by RGSC. It ended up winning the Gold Prize in the highest category from 600+ students.
Technologies/Domains: Mobile App Development, UI/UX Design, Flutter,
Studento's main aim is to reduce the friction CIE students faced during exam preparation and daily routines.
With that in mind, it included the following features:
Easy access to O/A Level past papers and marking schemes (within 15 seconds, compared to online sites
that took >5 minutes and lot more effort)
A concise schedule system for each day's classes
Easy access to each subject's syllabi
A todo-list for keeping track of events, homework, and deadlines.
I continued working on the prototype and released the full-fledged app on the Play Store at the start of
2020. It currently has over a thousand monthly users who have accesss to virtually every CIE subject, a 4.7
rating, and a lot more downloads.
In 2017, after being frustrated with the lack of
platforms for students to engage with tech, I started MoHack.
MoHack is now a recurring part of my life as I continue to host the largest student hackathon in Mauritius
each year. As the main
organizer, my responsibilities and tasks include(d):
Procuring sponsors for covering costs and providing hackathon winners with prizes.
Creating the MoHack brand identity, sponsorship prospectus, and all other physical & digital promotional
Creating the official MoHack landing page and registration form/flow.
Managing all logistics and email communications with participants.
Hosting the event, delivering keynotes, and mentoring participants.
In 2017, the biggest online creative community of
creatives in Mauritius hosted a design contest as they required a new name and brand identity.
My submission-- Creatist Space-- was selected to be among the jury's top-3.
