I am professional software engineer, a successful small business owner, a husband, and a father of eight children. Born in Zambia and of Indian (Goan) descent, I have lived in southern California since I was one-year-old. After earning my Bachelor of Science in computer science from Cal Poly University, Pomona, I worked at various companies and organizations including GE, JPL, YellowPages.com, Los Angeles Times, and Disney. I have been involved at different times with various ministries at my parish including CCD, Familia, and Cub Scouts. In my free time, I enjoy playing games with my kids.
