I work as a Technical Consultant and Subject-Matter Expert (SME) for one of our critical projects for the U.S. Department of Labor. Currently, I’m leading the application development team to help provide the very best service to our client.
In my free time, I like to watch movies, documentaries, and wrestling or survival shows. My favorite survival shows in particular are Man vs. Wild and Mountain Man.
Besides watching shows, I also love listening to old Indian music, especially Kishore Kumar, Mohammad Rafi and Mukesh.
Because I love historical places, my favorite vacation was actually the most recent one. I made a trip to Mikkeli, Finland, which was an amazing experience. Mikkeli has a rich military and architectural history that I enjoyed exploring while visiting.
Next, I hope to visit Petra in Jordan; the Colosseum and the Mausoleum of Hadrian in Rome, Italy; Leptis, Libya (which was originally a part of Ancient Rome); and Jerusalem and Bethlehem in Israel.

If I had a chance to give advice to my younger self, I would tell him to never give up and to keep moving forward.
I have three favorite quotes:
I’d want to spend my day making my wife happy by enjoying time with her and taking her shopping, because her happiness is my happiness.
Synergy is one of the best companies I have ever worked with. In my time here, I’ve learned management and leadership skills that have really helped me in my current project. I also love the culture of the company—it’s so cool how everyone is so eager and ready to help each other.
