Beginning of the Story
He was always fascinated by technology; from walkmans and CD players to computers and laptops and cars, you name it. You know you’re a tech geek when you call your laptop your best friend.
As his father owned a family business of security cameras, he never quite had the chance to escape the tech space and his admiration and obsession with gadgets was finally put to greater use with his YouTube channel.
Ever since he was a little child, he always wanted to be famous and make a one-of-a-kind name for himself worldwide.
Born and brought up in Ajmer, Rajasthan, he has a B.Tech degree in electronics from Rajasthan University. Years later, in 2012, he moved to Dubai, one of the most technologically advanced cities in the world, and got into BITS Pilani, Dubai Campus, where he earned his M.E [Master’s in engineering] in Micro Electronics.
This was where he earned a gold medal for academic excellence, and this very excellence earned him a Dubai police certification. He then worked as a security system engineer and helped his father’s business of CCTV cameras and other security devices. With such intellectual abilities, he took over his family business when his father was facing severe health issues.
Success Tips for YouTubers
As someone who manages to upload at least one video a day, he emphasizes consistency a lot when talking about being a good YouTuber.
Along with that, communication with and establishing a genuine connection with his audience and communicating with them is something that holds great importance as well.
Speaking of consistency, he goes with the flow and planning ahead is something that he often dreads.
