EA Mobile India (Electronic Arts) has to be the best time of my entire career until now. I got to work on my first AAA game title for the 20th Century Fox blockbuster movie X-Men Origins - Wolverine. The nine levels of the game are full of action with the protagonist's rescue mission. Most of the main characters and their animations for J2me as well as brew were done by me including parts of user interface and backgrounds. Fireworks and photoshop were the majorly used software to create all the game assets. The tenure with EA was short lived as a fatal bike accident forced me to quit the job within nine months of my joining.

Some of the other porting game titles include Monopoly, Yahtzee, Tiger Woods and Need for Speed.

I worked on over 40 games and applications during my 2 years and 3 months tenure with Mobile2win. Some of the branded games I worked on are Thums-Up Everest challenge, Bollywood movie Anthony kaun hai? starring Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi, Deal or no deal television show, Sony entertainment television's CID and Bollywood movie Naina starring Urmila Matondkar.
This is where my professional career began! These are some of the cartoons created for JAM (Just another magazine) while I was working with them as a freelance cartoonist during my college days back in 2003-2004. I cherish the time spent at JAM as it taught me professional ethics and working under crunch deadlines.
