Who am I?
I am a bit of a minimalist, but the most outrageously ambitious person you'd probably meet. I want to learn skills. All kinds of them. Few times, I let myself go far away into oblivion with this obsession. Such experiences are enticing, exciting, exhilarating and sometimes even exhausting. Nonetheless, they almost always end up being entertaining.

Things I've been lucky enough to be able to do -

* Finding people around me who have taught me valuable lessons

* Finish an Ironman triathlon. I survived Coeur D'Alene in 115 F

* Swimming a 12K

* Bicycling a 265K

* Juggling some fine patterns as I ran 42K in windy city

* Playing guitar at a couple of open mics

* Playing flute in a few songs us friends composed. Heck, we got people dancing to our music at times. Yes they got off their seats!

* Getting education from some of the finest places.
I graduated from IIT Bombay with a B.Tech in Chemical Engineering. The four best years of my life, made friends forever. I then went for graduate studies at University of Florida pursuing a Masters in Chemical Engineering. Now, I work at HERE Technologies as a Senior DevOps Engineer in their Security, Privacy and Continuity team.

Things I wish I'd be lucky enough to be able to do -

* Qualify for the Ironman World Championship

* Contribute significant value to the society
