    Over 14 years of experience in almost all domains of IT.
    I am one of the few individuals in the world holding all AWS Certifications.

    After becoming addicted to computers in School in the era of Mac OS 7 & Windows 3.0, I decided to take on IT as a career path and started with Microsoft Certified System Engineer Certification during School summer holidays. I became an MCSE (Windows 4.1) at the age of 18 and for 3 months worked as an SQL Server 7 Administration instructor in FITSIN Institute which I later quite in favour of giving 100% time to graduation.

    Over the past 14 years I've acquired skills and experience across a wide range of domains in IT mostly being development, operations, architecture, networking, web, mobility, search engine optimisation and security etc.

    My first computer program was at the age of 7 where I wrote a few lines of code from a magazine on my brother's Commodore64 in a language called Basic, I obviously didn't understand much but changing Hello John to Hello Sohrab made me feel like a rockstar. Since then I've been in love with computers.

    Now I'm addicted to electronic gadgets including drones, arduinos, raspberry pis, mobile phones, 3d printers, macbooks etc.
