Hey, I’m Aseem!

Me in 3 bullet points

  • I’m a software developer/indie maker building 12 side projects in 12 months to achieve my goal of $10K MRR by the end of 2022
  • I have degrees in Finance and Software Engineering from Monash University
  • I’m currently working on building Tressel – a micro-SaaS to save tweets/threads to note-taking apps (like Notion, Evernote & Obsidian)

Fact about me – Aseem (pronounced uh-seem) is a Hindu name meaning limitless (works pretty well as a personal brand too)

What this website’s about

What you’ll see on this website is the digital home of my thoughts and journey towards my goals 🏡

It allows you to get to know me without me actually being there – what I like to call scalable socializing.

Check out my current and past business exploits and failures in the Projects section.

Find in-depth notes on books I’ve read in the Book Notes section

If you want updates on what I’ve been up to – follow me on Twitter or subscribe to my newsletter
