Hello, I’m Upamanyu! I am currenly working as a freelance designer. I have to travel between Mumbai & Kolkata but mostly live in Mumbai, India.

I co-own a design firm that I had bery dearly named, Cloudstudio which I started in 2008.

I am a illustrator by heart, but I also take immense interest in product development, electronics and code development. PHP is my favourite language when in Web Development. C++ is my all-time favorite, but now I’m shifting more towards Swift. I prefer working on the backend.

I am currently available freelance design & development projects and always ready to back interesting ideas.

If you want to know about the Setup I use head on to /setup.

There is a list of personal & commercial projectn I worked with /projects.

I push most of my code to GitHub.

My little spare time is spent running open-source projects:

  • uPass, a smart password manager for smart people

I was born in Kolkata, India, I grew up there. Bengali is my mother tongue but I do have full professional proficiency in English. I speak, read, and understand conversational Hindi.

Pronunciation : Pronuncing my name can be a little difficult. The approximate phonetic is /uːpɔːmʌnjuː daːʃ/.

Upamanyu is a sequence of:

  • U as in coo without the initial c
  • pa as in paw
  • man as in munch without the the final ch
  • u as in you in totality

Das is like pass, if you replace the pa with D

Though I am not much of a athelete nor am I very sporty (which you will know at once when you meet me), but I do enjoy the one sport, that seems to give me a immense peace of mind. Swimming.

I read & follow HackerNews.

The only sports event I am interested in watching, is the Olympics.

I can be stalked at Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Bad Time Management

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents.
