Madhav Saxena (21)

I'm a web developer living in New Orleans, LA. I'm also a wannabe photographer and musician on the side. My favorite things are the New Orleans Saints, all things Linux/open-source, making websites, Hindi movies, and hip-hop music. Most writing on this blog will probably be about those topics. Otherwise, I'll just be rambling incoherently.
