Still, unlike most artists, he actually completed his studies that too masters. Additionally, it took several years for him to understand that the same unsettling feeling, that chaos was still there no matter wherever he goes, no matter what he does. And so, like most artists, he also dropped and left everything to pursue his calling. he created Music, and Oh! in this world full of chaos, he found his peace. he never has felt even that much wave of settlement. he loves both his work and his music. Juggling between the two, as a designer, he tells product stories and as a musician, he tells his own.
