Musings on Growth Hacking, Technology, Trends and Life

Life has been a blessing. From utterly humble backgrounds to the top of the corporate world, it has been a roller coaster yet fulfilling trajectory. I have spent over three decades in the technology sector across multiple countries and cultures, playing variety of roles from CEO/President/Founder/Operator across disciplines. Life has been an interesting journey and the most I enjoyed was inspiring, changing and transforming people businesses. ​​

I love connecting the dots from the past to the present and try to look ahead. To help people reach new heights of potential that they never thought were feasible. I like to write about these intersection points of technology, humanity, and life, steering clear of technical jargon, and industry lingo to enable a lucid understanding of the evolution around us.
