About Me

I love life & I love innovation. I've always been an avid engineer at heart and I really enjoy developing innovative ideas as part of my modus operandi. I also have a deep rooted passion for Algorithms, Math, Minimalist Industrial Design and I deeply believe in the mantra by Leonardo Da Vinci that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Occasionally, I'm also a columnist with a keen focus on Big Data, BlockChain, FinTech and the impact of emerging technologies in business.

My Specialities Are: Enterprise Application Development, Solution & System Architecture Design.

Staffordshire University

Master Of Business Administration (Distinction) June 2017

An MBA has given me first hand insight into how companies work. While acclimatizing key principles in Leadership, Strategy, Financial Analysis, Human Capital and Marketing, the 2 year program has enabled me to develop the capacity to analyse current challenges that face companies and deduce different strategies to mitigate the same. In equal measure, I've also developed a strategic mindset with regards to the role of people, process and technology in business. 

Staffordshire University

Bachelor Of Software Engineering (1st Class Honours) June 2013

While at Staffordshire, I also gained hands on experience in the various technology stacks that form the basis of both medium and large-scale end to end systems.
