I was born and raised in the Philadelphia/NJ area (Fly Eagles Fly!). At the age of 12, my parents decided to move us to India. I spent 4 of my teenage years there, which allowed me to have the experience of (at that time) an underdeveloped country. I’ve also traveled to various countries such as Peru, Bolivia, Turkey, Malta, Morocco. This has given me insight into other cultures and ways of life.
I’ve been working in the technology space for the past 17 yrs as a software developer and tech lead. From 2010 to about 2017, I also indulged in my love of photography where I have shot various projects as well as events. I have been part of a trivia team for the past 2.5 yrs. I enjoy reading historical fiction. In my downtime, doing crossword puzzles lets me unwind.
At this point in my life, I want to switch my focus slightly more towards being of service to community and humanity, whether that involves non profits or being more involved in the local government. I want my life to be about constant introspective growth which gets pushed along by experiences.
