    Summary

    I am a practising Technologist. I believe that CTOs in Tech StartUps or Management in charge of engineering/development units of Technology-driven organisations require someone who can capture and craft the software that they envisage. This investment is necessary for them to chart product road-maps, to identify Proof-of-Concept exercises, to create useful Prototypes, to lay the foundation of the whole solution and finally, to sell the final offering to all the major stakeholders. Any opportunity to work with them in these areas, excites me. I draw upon my 20 years of experience in roles ranging from Trainer, Software Developer, Technical Team-lead, Product Architect, Technical Communicator and CTO of a start-up to bring understanding, explanation, elaboration and insights of technology to the table. My focus has always been on the ways and means of 'engineering' an useful, usable, maintainable and extensible software and learning from every achievement and failure that such attempts brought about.
