I have been messing around with data for more than a decade now, I love to work on Database internals, performance tuning, and optimization, Database design, modeling, and implementation especially using Microsoft SQL Server and Azure database and analytics technologies.
As a developer and architect, I have worked closely with customers, users, and colleagues to support business solutions across a variety of industries including healthcare, insurance, finance, and government ranging from small companies to fortune 500 companies. These experiences provided opportunities to see varied implementations, troubleshoot performance-related problems, give guidance on design, and provide consultation on optimization, availability, and recoverability.
I helped in End to End Implementations of many database projects, providing team leadership and project management, requirements gathering, specification documentation, functional/technical design, Data modeling & solution architecture.
Outside of the technical world, I love yoga and meditation. I am a student of ancient yogic text Bhagavad Gita and love to discuss and practice philosophical teachings.
