About Me


Fascinated by the beauty, reach and power of the world wide web. Hope to make it large some day, put a dent in the universe, and want to be my best in whatever I do. Go getter, self motivator and fast learner.

What I Do ?

I have been creating web based applications from scratch for the past 17 years, primarily writing code in Rails and have extensively used technologies like MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, AWS and anything else that solves the problem. I am a fast learner, go-getter and self motivated individual who enjoys building things, and derives immense pleasure when those products get used!

    VP of Web Engineering

    MAZ Digital, Noida, India

    MazDigital.com is a digital publishing platform that allows magazine publishers to have interactive iOS/Android apps without any technical knowledge, via a DIY interface. It currently powers magazines like Forbes and OK! I joined the founders when it was a prototype (the first dev, other than the founders), and grew it to what it is today - a scalable platform, used by hundreds of publishers to serve digital content to millions of end users, on tablets and mobile devices. We have added a range of new products for Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV and Apple Watch! Other than that we have tried our hands at consumer products as well, which started as a mobile first browser, with some really cool features and evolved into a social network built around content sharing - Lynx!
