    Expert Tech and Gaming Writer/Blogger

    Pakistan - Tests: 4

    I can write different, engaging, and compelling articles that are not another average, run-of- the-mill stuff that is good enough to be approved and published, but is failing to be something more, something that can stand out in the crowd. Or to make you feel absorbed while reading that article or blog post you stumbled upon online and not fall asleep after the first paragraph and wake up two hours later thinking what stuff you could do in the meantime. The topics that I'm best at include: tech, video games, smartphones and tablets, but if I find that certain topic is interesting for me it's no problem to do some serious research in order to deliver the best possible content. I have been writing freelance content for top blogs that include but not limited to Ubergizmo, Geek Insider, AndroidHeadlines, RedFerret, and Beebom.
