I am a technologist and a startup advisor living in Surrey, Canada.
Over the years I have worked and experimented in application development, IT service management, design, entrepreneurship, education, civil rights advocacy, journalism, filmmaking, and public speaking.
You can find me on Twitter, on LinkedIn, on AngelList & on Instagram.
I’m currently the CTO at CommunityLogiq, a geo-spatial analytics startup I co-founded during Startup-in-Residence program with the city of San Francisco.
Before that, I worked for Lighthouse Labs as one of their first full time instructors, helping grow it to what is now Canada’s largest programming bootcamp. Prior to that, I built a small tech consultancy, Pippal Labs and built web applications for a variety of clients, after moving on from a long career managing large scale server clustors for two public universities.
Sometime in between various jobs and startups, I started PanjabiLab and The Turban Club - the latter was featured by Yale School of Management on its blog.
I graduated from University of Mississippi (Hotty Toddy!) with a MS in Computer Science and a Bacheclors in Technology from Punjab. I briefly attended Yale School of Management for a summer pre-MBA global leadership program, before putting MBA plans on hold to build my current startup.
I have lived in three different countries for an extended period of time, before finally calling Canada my home. For now!
