I have a passion to solve big problems.

Across healthcare and education, I use my technology background to build products that make an impact.

My proudest achievement is when my medical device helped save a vulnerable baby's life by detecting that the baby suffered from hypothermia, an illness that would have gone unnoticed because of a under resourced healthcare system.

Building something of meaning and relevance to the world has exposed me to some diverse teams. Of these the most inspiring experience is my current engagement with Teach For Uganda. Working with a global team to set up the first Teach For chapter in Africa helped me realise the kind of teams I want to work in the future: Global collaboration working to solve the world’s most challenging problems.

I grew up in Bangalore, known as the garden city of India and more recently startup capital of Asia. On a typical weekend you will find me at the dog park I set up or at the open mike night at Bangalore's restaurants.

Fascinated to learn about ancient engineering, I travel to as many archeological sites as I can. I recently visited DholaVira, a ruin site in west India that is the world’s earliest urban settlements. It was indeed an exhilarating experience to get to witness this 5000 year old civilization's perfection for urban planning, that sadly is no longer applicable or observable in modern India, today. In fact, it was during a visit to a temple that is over 1500 years old, that I proposed to my girlfriend of 4 years. She said yes!
