Life

Life

I was born in Madras but grew up in Bangalore. I am a husband and a parent, each role consuming 90% of my mind. With the remaining -80%, I do various things that are touched upon here.

Musings from the wedding are here if you are interested.

I studied at Sri Aurobindo Memorial School, Bangalore from 1975 - 85 and at St.Joseph's College, Bangalore from 1985 - 90. (Did you study there too? If so, mail me, won’t you?)

I currently work on some things that are in stealth mode (AKA "I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you") :-)

In previous lives, I have been an entrepreneur, an investor, an Internet Strategy Consultant, a Program Manager at Yahoo! and an Emerging Markets analyst at Intel.

If you’re into formal resumes, you can find one here .

And finally, you can check out a (very old!) collection of various tech-related articles I’ve written.

Music: My tastes in music run from Kamelot, Savatage, Dream Theater, and Rush to L Subramaniam and others too numerous to mention. I also used to sing in a band called Zen.

Books: I’m a fan of SFF, especially Douglas (Adams + Hofstadter), Rudy Rucker, Terry Pratchett etc.

Random:
I am one of the founders of The Goa Project.
I help out at a Public Policy think tank called Takshashila.
I collect fragrance, artisanal vodka and Interesting People.
