My name is Gaurang Patkar, and I am from Mumbai, India. I was born on 22 January 1980. My family had moved to Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates in the 1970's and we have been here since. Following my high school I completed my Bachelors of Science in Internet and Data Communications at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois. I am currently working in marketing and sales, and have also completed my MBA at the American University in Dubai.
I enjoy using Wikipedia for researching and learning about new information. I make a couple of contributions to topics every couple of days (or weeks). I enjoy photography as a hobby (apart from many other things). Since I take a lot of photos - most of my contributions are primarily images and usually just a snippet of text, here and there. I am learning the wiki markup language so that I may collect and distribute information with the right formatting in the near future.
