I grew up in a place called Kolhapur, Maharashtra state, India. I graduated as a Mechanical Engineer from Shivaji University. The world of technology & machines has always fascinated me - I grew up listening music from audio cassette tape and was a die hard fan of AC/DC, Def Lepard, G'NR's. The way ipod killed the cassette & compact disc industry - the world has been changing so fast that - today's technological discovery is tomorrow's history. Now, we are in the world where services like Itunes / Spotify music have changed the way we buy or listen to music. I can barely remember when was the last time, I went out and purchased a music album - NOPE - cannot even recall.
In my 17+ years of professional career - I have worked in multiple cities like, Tokyo, Portland, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune. Had my stints in various software services / hardware companies. I have always been interested in User Centered Design as well as Agile methodlogies which I learnt while working. I got my Certified Usability Analyst (CUA) certification as well as certified as a SAFe practitioner from Scalable Agile.
One of my hobby is DSLR, iPhone & Film photography - I have been taking digital pictures since 2001 - my first digital camera was a Sony DSCP72 which was 3.2 Mpx :) but I now have Sony A7III - mirrorless full frame. But most of the time for the easy of use - I am a avid iPhone photographer - you can see my work below from my instagram feed.
