About Me

Hey there!

I'm Amruth Pillai, and as you might have already read in quite a number of places, I'm a designer, developer, photographer and a writer, and this website was made to showcase all of what I can do. Don't judge my writing based on this about me though, this is by far my shoddiest work yet.

I got into design because I believe I have a mild case of OCD, as in, I hate to see things 'not look good'. So I set out on a journey to make products that people use that 'look great', and I'm forever on that path.

I got into development because computers have always fascinated me. int i = 10; creates an integer of value 10? LIKE, WOW! But seriously, just seeing code getting converted to things we use on a regular basis, like Facebook or Amazon, was no less than magic to me and that's where my quest to invent began.

I got into photography for a very philosophical reason and a very weird one at that. To me, photography is no less than time-travel. When I look at a photo, I am instantly transported to that moment in time when I shot it, that memory takes over. It's a beautiful art form to express creativity as well, and it's been a passion of mine since my childhood.

I created this website so I could showcase all this and through this process, make it easier for you to connect with me. If you like what you saw, head over to the contact section below and send me a text. I would love to hear from you!

Personal Statement

I am a highly motivated and hard working individual who is interested in all things out-of-the-box and creative, looking to head a career in web and mobile design and development. My eventual goal is to establish a good network and rapport with those of similar interests and work in an establishment that takes full advantage my skills.

Where do I live?
Amruth Pillai - Google Maps
Find me on the interwebs!

When I'm not building cool stuff like this, I'm usually whiling away my time on Facebook and it's other assorted band of time crunchers.

Want to say something?
Who in the world are you?
How in the world would I be able to contact you back?
What on earth would you possibly want to say?
