Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born in a India and spend most of my life the in Goa. I hail from a very spiritual, middle-class family and my spirituality is at the core of my being. I am a hustler who can hack  and code when need be. I balanced my undergraduate degree in Computer Science with a Masters in Information Systems. I have been extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to be part LinkedIn's rise and was employee #42 there. I reported to one of the co-founders directly and still maintain a very intimate relationship with him. During my almost 7 years at LinkedIn the membership grew 100X from 4 million to 400 million. Prior to LinkedIn I was lucky to be associated with the Opensource community as a member of the very small team which operated SourceForge.net.

 

Post LinkedIn I have taken on a variety of roles in very early stage startups and helps them in all areas from product management, sales and business development, engineering management,  fund raising, operations, and ensuring customer success.


Interesting Factoid

I have the reputation of asking challenging questions, especially during company-wide all hands meetings. I have also outsourced the "important" decision making to my spiritual guru and accepted the role of the executor.
