About Me

I’m good at solving problems collaboratively, asking the right questions to understand the "why", & soliciting feedback on ways to improve.

In my first year of college, I started a coworking space for like-minded people to come together and build cool stuff with technology. In my final year, while solving my own pain problem of customer experience, I started a chatbot development company where we generated more than $100k in the span of two years.

Technically-speaking, I'm strongest within the JavaScript ecosystems and like to surround myself with NodeJS run time environment and ReactJS Library. But where my experience stands out is in technical strategy and helping teams marry business needs with sustainable solutions.

For me, the software is never complete.
