I am a passionate engineering leader that likes to get my hands dirty. I started off working on kernel drivers, then moved onto operating systems, made a bunch of mobile apps on Android and iOS, and built highly scalable systems serving millions of users. I have led teams in small, medium and large startups and Fortune 500 companies. Besides engineering, I have also led and built successful products like Deliveries at Envoy and not so successful ones at an incubator in Samsung. I love cooking and building things. Hit me up if you want to build something together or if you are hungry.

Hey, I'm available every Wednesday at 6:00 PM (GMT)
