I’m an Armchair Thinker and writer. I use stories, data, science, and silly doodles to talk about personal finance and human behaviour.
Here I share some of my less idiotic and more rational thoughts with whoever accidentally lands on this website.
A little bit about me
- I was born to parents living below the poverty line in a remote village, and studied at a public school that lacked even the most basic facilities like toilets
- Worked at a petrol pump (gas station, for you Americans) to put myself through college
- I dropped out of MBA because it was the most useless thing I’ve ever signed up for. The MBA was like an expensive wife who sucks all your money and brings little to the table.
- I have been freelancing for as long as I’d like to remember. Yeah, typing words on the computer is how I make my living.
Why the ‘Armchair Thinker’ name?
I came across the term ‘Armchair Thinker’ on the Internet, and thought to myself that those two words perfectly describe who I am. I was planning to launch a blog at the time, so I had this sudden keeda to check if this domain name was available.
As luck would have it, none of the 7.7 billion people on the planet had thought of buying this domain name. Apparently, the universe was waiting all these years for the person who deserved it. And I grabbed it instantly.
