Description

Adept and passion are the two words that describe my two traits that I believe most reflect me as an individual.  I love to identify the gaps in products, process, implementation and concoct feasible solutions.  I enjoy volunteering with NGOs in my city as well as mentoring young technologists looking to start careers in the tech.
