Yo, I’m Aseem!

Me in 4 bullet points

  • I have degrees in Finance and Software Engineering from Monash University (officially graduate early 2022)
  • By day, I’m a full stack software engineer 💻
  • By night (and weekends), I’m learning how to be an indie-hacker and online business entrepreneur so I can be financially free 🚀
  • I’m into: business, wealth-creation, reading, spirituality, meditation, philosophy, MMA (BJJ, boxing and wrestling), cricket, weight-lifting, motorcycling, history, geopolitics, grand strategy, personal growth/development and productivity

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.

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

Find the books, films, artists, video games and articles that have influenced me in the Influences section
