About Me

Me with a dog named Batman. In my free time, I love taking care of dogs and drumming.

Hi there. Here is a list of bullet points that summarizes my existence:

  • Wanting to change the world and becoming an engineer went hand in hand and I did so with the hope of making some sort of positive impact and am a regular fanboy of Watsi and GoCopia.
  • Nuclear advocacy and energy poverty are things I write about regularly and in my free time I think a lot about Plutonium and Uranium acccess rights around the world.
  • I live in San Francisco, enjoy reading, studying foreign languages, walking dogs.
  • I am trained in Indian Classical music as a drummer[tablas].
  • I am a marketing, ops, and sales consultant, you can reach me at kumar(at)engineersf.com.

In the past,

  • I founded and led LeanBeltsLinkTexting, and GrowAmp. – small web projects that were stepping stones.
  • I was an early intern/member at Scan Tech Sciences and Lehigh Technologies where I gained a strong interest for high throughput manufacturing design, particle accelerators, polymers, and much more.
  • I studied Industrial Systems Engineering with a focus on Operations Research at Georgia Tech. I had hoped to complete a degree in Polymer-Textile Fiber Engineering til they shut down the program half way through.
  • I was born in Nashville, and bounced a bit between countries, and primarily grew up in Houston, Texas.

To learn more,

  • Read some of my writing on Quora, where I was declared a top Writer of 2016 & 2017. (I owe this to my friends who encouraged me to write more.)
