I fell in love with computers when I installed Ubuntu on my PC. I was 16 years old then. It changed my entire life.

Since then, I've been making computers do weird things almost every day. First, I did a Masters and a Bachelors degree in Computer Science via a 5-year dual-degree progam from the National Institute of Technology, Hamirpur, India. During this time, I was also employed by MetaBrainz as a Software Engineer. I was the lead developer of the ListenBrainz project.

After graduating, I moved to Dublin and worked as a Software Engineer at Stripe. I worked on the Security team, where I learned a lot about how to programatically secure software that thousands of developers work on everyday.

After 3 years and 7 months at Stripe, I moved back to India. I took a sabbatical for a while staying in Lucknow, working on a startup and building lots of projects.

I moved to Bengaluru in February 2024, and came back to Stripe, working in the Infrastructure team this time.
