I am a seeker, and i seek knowledge and experiences in varied forms. I have donned many hats as a product/project manager, presales team, support team, technical writing team, marketing team, and also managing the IP, for solutions on open source tools. I have developed various solutions for clients to help them assist in the testing activities when so one solution helped. And I am a polyglot.
Currently I am acting as a coach, writer, speaker and owner at 5 Elements Learning where I collaborate and work with many learning enthusiasts and mentors around the globe. An avid learner, I likes to keep myself updated to latest trends and technologies by attending conferences and workshops, and life has been kind enough to provide me with such experiences.
I am a firm believer in larger good, and likes to live by example. I volunteer my time for organization eVidyaloka, a virtual way to reach out kids who don't have access to education. I am also a life time member for Jabarkhet forest reserve, and People for animals.
