About Me

Codebreaker Turned Visionary: My Product Journey

The emergence of AI products ignites the need for AI Product Managers in the industry. For the past 5 years I have developed products crafting code that powers user experiences. Somewhere along the way, I craved more than just building the engine – I wanted to steer the ship. Enters product management that enables me to understand not just ‘How’, but also the ‘Why’ behind it. My dual Masters - MS in Product Management (Carnegie Mellon University) and MS in Computer Science specialized in AI/ML (University at Buffalo), equips me to bridge the gap between product and engineering.

At Amazon Music, I contributed to the team that expanded the amazon music library from 2 million to a whopping 100 million songs [ref]. The result? A surge in listening time and a daily active user increase of 8.6%! My hands-on experience at industry giants like Amazon Music, Audible, Esri and other notable names, has endowed me with a robust technical foundation and an insider’s view of what makes a great product tick.

I'm a product visionary with a developer's edge. Let's build something amazing together.

Then, I donned my designer hat, crafting user-friendly UI wireframes in Balsamiq to ensure the dashboards were intuitive and clear. Finally, I championed efficiency by developing RESTful web services with Flask for AEROS Command. But the story doesn't end there! I identified a gap in incident reporting and bridged it by building and integrating an Incident Management System with AEROS (NEC's energy management software) and JIRA. I spearheaded the development of 5 cloud-based dashboards that empowered system managers to gain real-time insights into electrical grids leading to a slashed incident detection time by a significant 27%, ensuring a smoother and more responsive energy grid.
