Short Biography

I grew up in a remote western part of Nepal (Gulmi District). Despite very limited availability of resources, I was always curious since my childhood. I consistently stood #1 in my school. I moved to the capital city, Kathmandu Nepal for my higher education. I went to one of the premier engineering college "Institute of Engineering" and graduated in Electronics and Computer Engineering with distinction. A complete and thorough understanding of how computer hardware is build from scratch and how software runs in a hardware, was my biggest accomplishment in my engineering college. I migrated to the United States in 2002 for my graduate school in Electrical Engineering and have been working in multiple technology organizations to develop enterprise scale software for Fortune 500 organizations. Building software platform, applications and tools from ground up is my core expertise. I have held leadership and strategic management positions in multiple organizations.

I am in a mission to build a software platform to connect diaspora community to their homelands and provide a tool for talented individuals all over the world to become part of global social economy, irrespective of their location, racial, economic and social background. It is almost certain that the pace of migration of people across the world will continue increasing in future.  I strongly believe that there should not be any physical distance barrier for love and opportunities.
