About Me

  • Gender Male
  • Industry Development
  • Date of Birth 09 Sep 1982


I am passionate about products and throughout my career this passion has always invigorated zeal and enthusiasm to achieve more, to solve bigger challenges, to reach out to cross functions, to break the deadlocks and deliver results.

After successfully handling multiple “from-scratch” development projects, my next calling is to engage with Customers, to study them, to understand their needs and choices they make, to build products which is utilitarian at the least but customer centric at its core.

Passion to work with products, on  cross-domains has kept me going beyond my regular work and has led to start of 2 ventures on my own – one in home Lighting and another on Agro-based venture.
