Noble Traits in Me :

I am witty, humorous, internet savvy, internet savvy, internet savvy and a bit more internet savvy and these traits are bound in strong knit through my gifted smartness and intelligence.
I can analyze numbers and can come up with really good inferences and conclusions, thanks to my mathematician's brain, 4 years of engineering studies and investment banking job

Social Media & Business - I am their mutual friend:

If owning a twitter advertising company or a social media consulting company is not enough to prove the heading, send me a friend request on Facebook and test it! I gel really well with all the new and old social media platforms present in the world and can get any business and product the reach it demands for through these social networks.
