I write about startups, technology and entrepreneurship.

I founded and sold BuzzGain, a leader in Do It Yourself PR, to Meltwater. I have also failed at several startups and succeeded at others.

Besides having held executive and management roles at Microsoft Ventures, Hewlett Packard (Mercury Interactive), I have also worked at Cisco Systems. I studied at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County pursuing a Master’s degree in Computer Science and have a Bachelor’s degree in engineering and computer science from the University of Mysore in India.
