I am an Electrical Engineer by trade. Having obtained a Bachelor of Engineering from India and a Master’s in Electrical Engineering from Syracuse University, I worked in the field of Radio Frequency Engineering for a few years.
Subsequently, I worked as a Business developer and a Retail salesman before finding my calling in the field of Education. I have been in education for the past 17 years and am loving every moment of it.
I have a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from SUNY Empire State College and a Certificate of Advanced Studies (School Building and School District Leadership certificates) from Syracuse University. Currently, I am pursuing a PhD from Syracuse University in Teaching and Curriculum and also completing my School District Business Leadership certificate.
Something you may not know about me: While in college I worked at a fast-food place and made pizzas from dough to finished product. I still do that sometimes for my family.
I have been married for 17 years to my wife Robin, and we have two sons who are 12 and 13 years old. We love the outdoors and everything about it, from finding new places, to hiking on trails, and just being out in nature.
This includes traveling to different places so we can experience the outdoors in a different setting. But it is hard to beat Upstate New York for opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.
I love to spend time with my family, read (ancient history, science, technology, and many other topics), grill, and volunteer. I am a member of the Rotary Club and through them and various religious organizations I get the opportunities to volunteer. I truly believe that “The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others” – Mahatma Gandhi.
I also love playing soccer, tennis, frisbee and watching football (NFL).
