About Me

I am a voracious learner.

I always had a Computer Science bug since teenage years. I was fortunate to have a top ranked institute in my hometown. I graduated in CS.

After graduation, I joined the world of enterprise software consulting.

A decade ago, I left my job at Big-4 Consulting firm to join a small startup in Bangalore. Here, I built self-service HR for Cisco. Last I heard, It’s still being used by over 300,000 employees everyday. The small startup was acquired by CTS in the year I left.

Since then, I have worked closely with several founders (early stage to post-IPO) to convert opportunities into products, build teams, and drive engineering culture.
