I grew up in South India mostly in the cities of Coimbatore and Chennai (previously known as 'Madras'). After my undergraduate degree in Engineering there, I moved to Saskatchewan in 1994 to pursue a master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan. I subsequently settled to live here as well.

I am very passionate about software development and software architecture, and I am also thrilled to be involved in a field that is having a profound impact on the very nature of humanity in terms of changing as well as accelerating how humans learn, use and share knowledge with each other as part of the numerous commercial and non-commercial activities that we all collectively engage in every day.

Over the last 23 years, I have worked on some very interesting software projects ranging from rowing performance improvement studies, microwave guide design, teleradiology and imaging systems, electronic health record systems, financial and investment management-related applications, electronic document management and speech recognition-based applications. I have shared this journey with some sharp people over the years and have helped my clients and employers conceptualize, design, develop and implement ideas/products that are enabled by information technology quickly and in a cost affordable manner using both commercial as well as open source solutions.

Technologies and standards that I am most comfortable with include Java, .NET, XML, Javascript, PDF, DICOM, HL7, Cryptography, SQL Server, Postgres, Redis, Oracle and MySQL. Some hobbies I enjoy include reading, traveling and learning the guitar. When I have a bit of time, I tend to write some articles on topics that interest me including technology, history, science, travel and reading. If you need reach me, please call me at 306-992-0104 or send me an email.
