You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Hardware • Robotics • Electronics • Embedded Systems • Sensors

Key Accomplishments

I am a Roboticist with a passion for hands-on building and teaching. Over the past few years I have been involved with start-up in the field of Robotics, Embedded systems, Energy Monitoring/Control (home automation) and Could based Service Provider. The most important aspect of being a start-up engineer is the “can-do” attitude and the ability to learn quickly.

I have also conducted workshops and taught as Adjunct faculty in Technology (Microprocessors and Robotics), while working full-time at startups.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am a Startup person and have experience with Electronics, Business Strategy, Social Media Marketing and Product Design (hardware). I am also experience in teaching.

As an Advisor

If you are a Hardware startup planning to build your first prototype or working on converting prototypes to product, I will be glad to help. We can meet for a coffee and go over your project, and based on my past experiences, I can help you select the best possible way to proceed further.
