Biography

I'm Regional Director for Infrastructure and Connectivity, primarily working in the Asia and the Pacific region. I carry a professional appetite to work with people and build Internet infrastructure and networks to connect the unconnected. I have been lucky to fulfil this appetite over the years, working with various communities in various capacities and through diverse projects.

Internet technology, policy, and regulations are my essential skills, and working with people from different cultures is my passion. 

I aspire to live in a world with an open Internet, music that comes bundled with a strong coffee, and a force that drives inclusion and collaboration.

I spend my free time at the gym, reading books, with friends, and watching cricket.
