DevOps Engineer building scalable cloud native apps one container at a time.
I love to talk DevOps, creating awesome experiences for devs through simplifying complex processes and ensuring access to mission critical apps safe and fast. 
I write blogs about new tools that I come across which happen to make my workflow more efficient or small little hacks which I adopted to make something either less complex or more interesting. 
When I'm not ensuring some applications uptime or deploying updates to fleets of apps, you can find me on snooker table or behind the wheel.

Successfully completed migration of 100+ applications from Citrix VM's to AWS EC2 servers and delivered a fleet of servers that were scalable, secure and performance optimised.

With migration completed, task of modernisation start to take front seat and started laying framework to include more cloud native AWS services into applications to make them more modular. Started doing R&D around AWS services which can substitute the existing functionalities to make code base lighter.
