Hi. I am Arun. Welcome to my tiny home on the internet. I am an aspiring Digital Media Producer.
Myself

I hail from a small village in interior South India. I was raised in Madras(Chennai) and was one among the privileged millions to have a happy childhood. Growing up in an era of video games and personal computers, I gradually got exposure to healthy video games thanks to my parents for their the constant discouragement from playing the violent ones. The PC, internet and games influenced me to such an extent that I took up computer science as my major in college. Somewhere down the road, my focus shifted from data structures and algorithms to web design, graphics and digital art. Later, I joined a diploma programme in Digital Media. This was one of those germinal stages for my interests in designing for the web, animation, casual games etc.

After graduating, I took up the Master's Degree in IT at the Rochester Institute of Technology, New York focussing on Multimedia, Game Design and Web Programming. After an eventful first year at RIT, I am eagerly waiting to start a six month project on chaos theory simulation or a multi-player web game with pond ecosystem management as its core theme.

I dedicate every pixel of my work to my parents. :)
