In my long experience in education industry, I worked with educators and help them run a technology based learning delivery environment. I also support businesses runs online commercial learning delivery platform.
I greatly enjoy working with information technology; it is something I would do even if it did not bring my bread. I have accrued most of my skills initially from pure interest and curiosity eventually added with work I had to do for others. I started working at the age of 19, helped a publishing house with their film printers and scanner. Eventually I got into supporting ISPs as there systems administrator, and the story goes on.
Recently I have decided to focus on more consultancy work as it allows me to work with other organization and learn to see technology from many different prospective, which keeps adding new dimension to my understanding of Technology I work with.
Got married some months back, she is a lawyer (beware). She continuously supports me to keep up with my busy and demanding work schedule. Life and work has more meaning with her being on the side.
What else interests me…
Besides Open source technology integration, in my free time I read books and follow subject matters like, business creation and entrepreneurship, cognitive physiology, quantum mechanics and field theory, astrophysics etc. I enjoy following updates on gadgets and smart infective computing devices.
I enjoy traveling, trekking, photography, Alternative and Rock music. Recently got my first scuba diving lesson, looking for interesting spots to dive near where I live.
