To begin with, I am a Web Developer by profession. As unaware as a majority of people, I didn't knew the importance of open web and open source until I became a part of Mozilla.
I believe that the Internet is wholly a part of the "People", and not any particular organization. And this is exactly what drives my passion towards promoting Open Web.
Personally, I am one of the craziest guys you will ever meet. I never play by the rules. This sentence always describes me perfectly :P
