Objective

I'm looking to work with someone with a desire to create great products.
Am willing to tear down walls, build bridges, and light fires.
I have lots of energy, a bit of that "vision thing" and I'm not afraid to start from the beginning.

Work Experience

Larsen & Toubro Limited, Mumbai (1996 - 2000)

The largest company I've worked for till date.
A great company of engineers, building products for engineers.
This was the incubator for my ideas, also a great work environment in the earlier phases.
Improved internal Management Information Systems to bring them on par with changes to user interface technologies.
Researched and implemented the company's first HTTP based information disemmination system.


Vantel Technologies, Bangalore (2000 - 2001)

The biggest mistake of my life.
The Bangalore division was a start-up with a lot of managers but no products.
They never had any direction and ultimately got shutdown due to mis-management.
Created the specification for a proposed $100 Internet Access Device as well as designed the graphical user interface for the same.


Tisya Microsystems Private Limited, Mumbai (2001 - 2003)

Invested heavily in funding this start-up.
Tisya was founded on the premise of developing smart, easy to use computing environments for the general user. Primary inspiration for the products were ideas floated around by Dr. Douglas Englebart and Mr. Alan Kay.
Designed the human interface guidelines for the computing environment being developed in addition to managing the developers through the product development cycle.


Pinstorm, Mumbai (2004 - 2005)

A great work environment.
The first web related start-up that I worked for.
It was an in-between step for me, going from being the most important person at Tisya to a regular employee at general computing industries.
Systemetized the product development processes, environment and tools.
Formed the design and development team.


Cleartrip, Mumbai (2005 - 2006)

Company with a good vision.
Worked during the startup phase as a technology leader cum technology team builder.
Initiated formation of the software development team.
Did rapid prototyping of product modules.
Developed internal information management systems.


Ticketvala, Mumbai (2006 - 2007)

Company with a good idea.
Worked during the startup phase doing project management.
Assisted in refactorization of the visual elements of the existing product.
Advised on changing the business model to suit realities of business environment.


Vaima Technologies, Mumbai (2007 - 2013)

I realised that I love to do a mix of technology and business, basically application of the right technologies to solve a business problem, and figured that the best way to do that would be to act as an independent consultant.
