I hold over ten years of experience in software development & consulting, and has a strong application development and architecture background. My specialization lies in diversified Cloud and DevOps technologies. I have worked in various roles ranging from Individual Contributor, Technical & Cloud Architect, Consultant, and Dev Team Lead depending on the nature of the project.

I have a good understanding and experience of working on Agile development methods such as Scrum and Kanban.

Recognized for extensive analytical skills to solve business problems using a broad range of proven methodologies and techniques. Meeting deadlines and always exceeding expectations.

I contribute regularly to the open source community and strive to give back in whatever way I can. I try and write three blog post per month based on stuff I've learned on the job.

Some of my favorite songs

    Sometimes you just feel tired, feel weak, When you feel weak, you feel like you just wanna just give up. But you gotta search within you, try and find that inner strength. And just pull that shit out of you, and get that motivation not to give up. And not be a quitter no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face.
