Speaker bio

I am a solution architect, delivery leader and a technical geek all rolled up into a sound software professional with strong work ethics.

I love to work with groups to solve problems, develop new products and enhance existing ones all the while focusing on meaningful process, methodologies, critical deadlines and timely results. A problem-solver and trouble-shooter by heart, I am enthused to work with my clients to shape their vague requirements and ideas into meaningful products.

I am experienced in applying people, process, problem-solving and technical skills to improve individual, team and organizational performance with a proven track record in delivering mission critical solutions.

In my free time, I like to tinker “things” and try to make something interesting out of them. Love Arduino and Raspberry Pi, Python and everything around them. I have been teaching Arduino programming to kids in Pune for last 2 years and also taken session for college students like IISER
