I am an avid technologist who loves to work on challenging problems and find solutions for them. Leadership is my strength as i believe that achievement depends on working together as a team.

I have 15 years overall experience, with more than 8 years of management experience. I am currently working for Blackboard, which is a global leader in providing education software for higher Ed, K-12 and others. I am the Director of software development there, managing large development teams comprising overseas teams delivering innovative solutions. Over the years, I have initiated and established various process improvements with approaches like continuous delivery and agile scrum to adapt quickly to the market requirements. I am also an advocator for test automation and done some extensive projects in that area. 

With educational background in Computer Science, I am a strong technical leader with hands on experience in software design, development and implementations.
