About Me

I was born in the mid-80s in a small village called Jhariya, which is in the middle of the Thar Desert. I’ve lived those days of no water supply and no electricity in hot summers where the mercury touched 49℃ (~114℉). Those days when a camel was the only means of transportation; when I used to wait weeks to receive letters from relatives; and when I’ve seen generation after generation struggling against poverty. But those days shaped who I am today. Built my belief. Helped me find my passion. Made me gritty.


Left my village, moved to Jaipur, started living by myself.

Summer internship at the University of Paderborn, Germany, which exposed me to the Western world.

Graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) with an engineering degree, moved to Canada.

Got a Masters degree from the University of Alberta. Took a break moved back to India.

Moved back to Canada, started working in the oil and gas industry.

Successfully failed (or shut down) one web agency and two startups.

Cofounded LoginRadius, quit my job.

Grew LoginRadius to thousands of clients worldwide, moved the company to Vancouver.

LoginRadius raised $17M from Microsoft and ForgePoint.
