Joined the SDM Team: August 2009
Why I Write for SDM: I write for Sweet Designs Magazine because I want people to read and comment on what I write, so that I can learn and grow as a writer.
Activities, Sports, Interests: I'm a jack of all trades, but master of none. I'm also a voracious reader.
Favorite Authors: JRR Tolkien, Philip Pullman, Stieg Larsson, JK Rowling, Jhumpa Lahiri, Jeffrey Archer, Erich Segal, Rick Riordan, and many, many more.
Favorite School Subjects: English. To some extent, Economics as well.
Favorite Movies: I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Pirates of the Caribbean, and the X-Men series.
Favorite TV Shows: My favourite TV shows are Castle, White Collar, How I Met Your Mother, and Burn Notice. No, I do not want Castle and Beckett to get together. It would just ruin the show.
I listen to: U2, Coldplay, Goo Goo Dolls, The Script, Robbie Williams, The Beatles, Nickelback, and Cheap Trick. I like a lot of songs from other artists as well, but these artists dominate my music library.
Most Important Values: Respect the privacy of other people.
I enjoy: Conversing with people. Apart from a good book, there is nothing more invigorating than a good conversation.
Future Plans: I wish to be a journalist, amongst other things.
