I am a Program Manager and drive the manageability efforts of DPM. The goal of the manageability team is to make DPM the easiest to manage with minimum costs involved. Working with the various products and technologies in this space is really a fantastic experience.

I am also one of the founding members of this blog, and would love to hear about your experience here! [:)]

While not working, I enjoy spending time with my family. Also, traveling and being occupied with my camera and books are my favorites too!
