I arrived in America a year before Y2K from India. With my work visa secured, I was excited to join the ranks of IT consultants in the heart of Silicon Valley. Having previously worked in Bangalore, often referred to as the Indian Silicon Valley, I felt right at home, ready to hit the ground running.
With my postgraduate studies in Business Management and my passion for information technology in hand, I quickly gained experience in the field of technology, developing an expertise in AIX on RS6000 platform.
My success working as a Consultant on multiple engagements working on multiple vendor platforms and operating Systems including AIX (UNIX), Cisco, Unix /Linux, precipitated an invitation to join Firsthand Capital Management as a full-time consultant. An investment adviser offering open- and closed-end funds, Firsthand Capital was a good fit to officially launch my stateside information technology career focusing on Data Center Infrastructure.
For more than two decades, I have earned a reputation for leadership; designing, developing, and executing world-class enterprise-level storage, cloud, and infrastructure initiatives.
I empower my multicultural teams to deliver innovative, high-quality, custom enterprise solutions.
In my role as Principal Engineer of SAAS operations, during my 10-year tenure at Ellie Mae, I am proud to share that we have never, ever lost any data as a result of my data-protection solutions. This distinction has earned me a reputation as a respected technology executive known for leveraging information security and risk management to guarantee superlative customer service.
Fluent in four languages including Kannada, a local Language for Bangalore enables me to bridge the divide with overseas counterparts and management, providing a seamless continuum of quality, innovation, and dependable services.
In my world, data is King. I bring my vast repository of immense knowledge to every project I undertake, with a commitment to excellence.
