Hello, I am Tej!

About me

I have been doing Origami from previous 10 years. I have a keen interest in Geometry, Robotics, Graphic Designing, and Mechanics. I love fabrication and working with tools like laser cutter, 3D Printer, 3D plotter, Moulding/Casting, etc. I love designing and fabricating things for the sake of fun and utility. I am now interested in things which after making I can study upon like finding their applications in the real world, unfold the underlying maths in them, modify them or create something completely different from that. I have tried exploring Origami with Robotics. Recently, I was working on Rigid Origami and one was trying to design a collapsible Dome using MDF(Medium Density Fibreboard). I also like exploring different materials to do Origami with, I recently started exploring Polypropylene and Polyester. I love how different materials give whole new different properties to the same model.

I feel that I have a calm and cool nature. I enjoy travelling and meeting new people. I have been to many places in India to teach Origami. I also play sports like badminton, swimming, skating, football, etc..I study in 11th grade in a government school in the state capital, Gandhinagar of Gujarat state. I am both an introvert as well as extrovert.

I am always open for exploring new things and YouTube has provided me a great aid in learning and exploring new gadgets and tools. I have grown up learning and following YouTube Channels like Jeremy Shafer, Jo Nakashima, Paper Kawaii, VAT19, Unbox Therapy, etc.

I have acquired qualities like patience, focus, precision, perseverance, endurance practicing Origami over the years. And for that, I am indebted to Origami. I keep some papers handy with me always when travelling. I want to teach and learn whenever and wherever possible. I am blessed to have got a great exposure of Origami in my life so far. And it can be easily summed up that now origami has become not only an important but also an integral part of my life : Now, whenever I am given a problem statement I have a thinking method which is deeply connected with Origami.
