Full Stack Software Engineer

12 years of work experience and counting. Yet still learning every passing day! What keeps me going in technology is that it has the power of constantly surprising us with things that we thought were not possible.


About Me


I am a Full Stack Developer with a wide array of experience spanning close to 10 years. Apart from working as a full-time professional in some great companies, I have also worked as a freelance consultant with multiple clients worldwide.

The diverse experience helped me to understand unique perspectives, aspects and how different cogs in the wheel run the software industry from marketing, sales and in general a business point of view. All of this helps me to become more effective engineer in an organization as I am able to better understand all project stakeholders and their point of views.
