Startup, Travel and Random Musings are my things
I live in London and travel across the world. Right now I am working on building an impact innovation ecosystem.

Cognizant Technology Services
Business Development Lead, 2015 - 2017
Cognizant was my first introduction to the world of information technology infrastructure services. Here I learnt about everything about sales strategy and new business acquisition. I discovered my niche in pricing strategies and during my time, with my team we won business of over $300 million for the company.
Founder, 2012 - 2015
PetroFirst was the first big plunge in to the world of entrepreneurship and a great learning experience. Here we tried to build a dedicated learning and research platform for the oil & gas industry. We had a wonderful run while it lasted, until the industry crash in 2014. We came out unscathed – cash positive and with a lot of learnings. I hope to revisit this endeavour once again.
Halliburton Offshore Services Inc.
Field Engineer, 2010 - 2012
Halliburton was a first for me in many things – chopper rides, deep sea drill ship, multicultural teams and working international. My work took me to the remotest corner working in really harsh conditions – it was an ensemble of learnings probably perfect for the first every work experience. Working on CBM projects in Asansol, I got to learn not only the aspects of project management but also importance of team work, stakeholder management and public relations.
