About Me

Who am I?

You probably know my name by now… Other than that I am just a simple human being.

What do I do?

Currently employed by IBM as a Software Developer at their Ottawa Software Lab. Besides work, I hold the position Vice Chair, Membership Development Committee, IEEE Ottawa Section. I love to explore, and to learn. Hobbyist photographer, and technology enthusiastic. I promote FOSS movement- like to talk about them to both technical and non technical audience. I have some secret projects I work on (As usual me, like to make things sound complicated.. :P).

What I am interested at?

Reading (any random topic), music, traveling and food! Of course in terms of career, developing/designing software, ASIC, and CAD.

What I have done in past?

I started working for Citadel Rock Online Communities in 2006 as a TikiWiki developer. After that I did my co-op in Alcatel-Lucent as a software designer in 2007, where I worked with a J2EE application development team. Later under Carleton’s TalentFirst networking program, I have worked  in few projects. I have done my one-year long internship at JDS Uniphase as a Hardware Engineer, where I have worked in ASIC designing, and later designed and developed a web based test suite (I don’t know how complicated the design was- it is still going through it’s 3rd year of development and I hear some good stories). Almost at the end of my third year, I co-founded a software service providing company called Grype Solutions. There I have played different roles in leading, managing and developing few projects for about 1.5 years.

What is my future plan?

I have recently started my career with IBM. For next few years I will be exploring the potential opportunities and continuing to volunteer at IEEE.
