15+ years of experience across Strategic Consulting, Product marketing & Pricing, Customer insights & Analytics and operations. For the past 8 years, I have been actively involved in cutting edge technologies that are redefining the technology landscape- like cloud (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS), Hyperconverged infrastructure, Internet of Things, Kubernetes, SD-WAN etc.

I am currently working as a Senior Manager – Global Pricing & Operations – launching SaaS products at VMware.

Prior to VMWare, I was working with Oracle India as a program manager (Business Development) for India IaaS and PaaS business. I also worked for Dell and was leading a team of 15 analysts as a Manager in Product & Pricing at Dell Business operations, handling Dell Consumer Products.

Prior to Dell, I worked with Capgemini as a Financial Strategy Consultant as part of its Strategic Analysis Group (SAG). I worked on projects for clients across global markets such as Merrill Lynch, Gucci and Deutsche bank.

I have co-authored the World Wealth report (2009 & 2010) and Asia Pacific wealth report (2009) that was jointly published by Capgemini and Merrill Lynch Global Wealth Management.

I hold a Postgraduate diploma from S.P.Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR), Mumbai, 2008

I was interested in exploring new places from my teens and a travelling job in early part of my career helped me build on this passion. I like planning my trips and reading about the places I am going to visit so that I can relive them when I visit the place.

All the pictures that you can find in my blog have been clicked by me. I am not a big time photographer and do not carry any high end camera. For me a picture is more about capturing the moment and you will be surprised to know that most of my photos have been taken using my Nikkon L120 camera and smartphones  .
