About Me

I am quite passionate about the Web, JavaScript, am a Web perf enthusiast and love engineering user interfaces. I currently work on the Microsoft Search team at Microsoft. I previously worked on the Outlook Web Team and led some efforts on the mobile web version.

Have previously led UI efforts at a fin-tech startup, ClearTax and worked on building Offline heavy web applications. I was also part of building the first real-world Progressive Web App, Flipkart Lite and the new Flipkart Desktop website.

I love engineering User Interfaces and started my work career as a Front End Engineer with Yahoo!. I have also developed iOS games with Odinix before.

I grew up mostly in Hyderabad where I got myself a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Osmania University and now live in Bangalore. Being a Tamilian and having lived across South India, I do speak multiple languages and am a big-time vegetarian foodie!

Being part of a dot com company when the Internet world is perpetually refashioning and reshaping itself, it makes my job pretty interesting and I try to get creative in using technology!!

A big fan of JavaScript, interesting UX patterns, gadgets, an avid hacker, love music, movies, traveling and sports. Most of the times, my antennae tune in and assimilate random bits of information.

Here are some of my favorite quotes-

A good way to stay flexible is to write less code.

Before a software can be reusable, it first has to be usable. -- Ralph Johnson

I also speak at conferences & meetups sometimes.
