I am a tech enthusiast, currently working towards becoming a credentialed Actuary. This is a radical shift from what I was doing previously (Start-up consultant, Teacher and Change Manager) and I’m so glad I’ve found a challenging career track that would be a brilliant buildup on my prior experiences. I graduated from Columbia University in May’ 2015 and am currently an actuarial analyst at Willis Towers Watson. I maintain a technical blog called The Actuarial Postpad where I keep track of my learning’s as I put in those innumerable hours studying for the exams.
While I am not cranking out my grey cells, you’ll find me on one of those trails sweating it out. I’m extremely passionate about the outdoors and never miss an opportunity to Backpack, venture out on long Bicycle rides, explore new places on long hikes or just travel when time permits. Of late, I’m currently training for a triathlon. To put it short, I enjoy doing anything that gets me off the chair, off the computer and gets me out there in the wilderness.
Early 2007, I wrote my first post. Things were pretty nascent then and I really loved the idea of writing. Besides serving as a source to record important events, writing to a blog also gave me an opportunity to explore amazing platforms that fueled the technical side of me. Over the next couple of years, I moved the blog to my personal domain. Since then, this site has served as a log of all the activities that I’ve been involved in, am currently pursuing and those that I plan to enact soon. I plan to keep it as a reference and if I could say, a check back application that would keep reminding me of things that are to be done or accomplished both on the professional and personal front.
