It is been said that life will always surprise you with new plans and decisions. I was supposed to be a cricketer, but I am working as a Teacher. As I enjoyed cricket playing and watching, similarly I am happy and content teaching young minds.

Apart from teaching I like to work out and eat a lot. I am a very spiritual person and I have visited many spiritual places.

I have done my schooling from Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya. After completing my SSC, I selected Commerce and joined S.I.W.S College of Commerce and Economics. From the same college I also completed my B. Sc.IT in the year 2005.

After completing my graduation, I joined Vidyalankar Information Technology as a Lab Assistant and took admission for M. Sc.IT in the University of Mumbai (IDOL). During this period, I got opportunity to engage lectures for B. Sc.IT students of Mumbai University (IDOL) and this started my Teaching Career.

In the year 2010 I joined Pune Vidyarthi Grihas College of Science and Technology as a Lecturer. Here, I got to learn more and teach students and I kept exploring my knowledge. As my core subject is Networking and Operating system, I have setup a full-fledged Working Computer Laboratory of 160 Computers for B. Sc.IT and B.Sc. CS students. In PVG College, I had set Paper for B.Sc. IT Mumbai University Student (IDOL) for the first time. I learnt how to guide students and solve their queries as well as to behave with your colleagues and students.

While everything was moving with good pace in my professional space, urge for learning more however was still burning in me. So along with teaching in VSIT, I took admission for Master’s course in Mumbai University and subsequently completed it with Outstanding Grade in March 2016.

I was fortunate to come back to Vidyalankar School of Information Technology as an Assistant Professor in the year 2014. In VSIT, I worked in many committees that had opened many new directions for me as a learner and an instructor. Placement is one of such committees where I interacted with various companies like Capgemini, TCS, WIPRO, Infosys etc. and guided students to get placed by arranging activities that eventually helped them to achieve their goals. VSIT inspired me to write my first Research Paper on “Internet: A Quality Based approach to implement in BMC Schools”. I was invited as a Guest Speaker in “Wellness Forever” to teach advance Excel, word, and PowerPoint. Looking at my knowledge in Networking and computers, VSIT appointed me, as the Convener of Lab Development Committee. I have arranged and conducted many activities for students, teachers and for Non-Teaching Staff, that helped them to gain knowledge about Hardware and Networking.

I have also participated in many Faculty Development Programs including the one conducted by IIT Bombay where I was selected as the Best Performer from 4000 teachers all over India.

My first book “Operating System” by Seth Publication released in the year 2019. As a responsible citizen I tried contributing by participating as a service to community in Nirmal Vidyalaya School. I help student to learn computers and to use word and PowerPoint. A Teacher enlightens the path of success, similarly I will try to inspire, ignite the imagination, and instill love of learning in each student.
