Hi! I'm Ankush, a cloud engineer by profession. I have a degree in Information Technology and I love working with new tech and computers.

My focus and interests have included various topics in the fields of computers and technology. Teaching has been a passion for a number of years.

In addition to my interest in teaching, I have experience as a Cloud engineer. My role in this field has provided me with experience and insight into the architecture, deployment, development, and administration of cloud environments. A newer interest of mine has been in the area of virtualization and AWS.

On a personal note, my hobbies include reading, traveling, and playing card games with my family and friends. I love music, especially Kawali.

I am looking forward to the experience and challenge of teaching and learning online with you. Computer Science is a field that covers a vast amount of information and due to its abundance and necessity, it is easily applied to our own lives and the lives of those around us.
