Professional Practice

I’m an aspiring intrapreneur and project manager with intense professional product development experience, and I’m also a sustainability enthusiast. I possess a profound knowledge of product planning, design and development with broadened risk and quality management skills. I’m seeking to enhance my managerial and administration skills and start a career as a project/program manager, and eventually reach goals with sound practical experiences.

My fun time includes playing badminton and cricket, watching and analyzing movies, cooking because it helps to relieve stress and being a mountain person.
