Bio

By qualification I hold a Masters in Computer Science from the University of Southern California. Post my Masters I worked for a Software firm in Boston called MathWorks. I have more than 6+ years of experience in the software industry having grown from a Tech Support Engineer to a Software Engineer and have worked from startups to multi national companies.
My last stint, after moving back to India from the US, before I began my entrepreneurial journey was with a startup called LogiNext in India. Besides tech, my other passion is aviation. Anything related to the aviation field really excites me. I enjoy travelling and spending time at the airport clicking pictures of various aircrafts departing and arriving.

Recently I have also been enjoying studying the Indian equity markets. It fascinates me as an investor in many publicly traded companies, to study their business models, strategies and future growth prospects.

WordPress Origin Story

After moving back to India, I worked for a few months at a startup where things did not end up so well for me. I decided to move on by myself and started taking up freelancing projects. During the last two years the e-commerce sector has been booming a lot in India. I got several projects related to e-commerce which I had to execute in a shorter time span.

During my research, I came across WordPress as a platform for creating such e-commerce websites. After digging a little deeper and learning about Woo Commerce, I successfully completed my first e-commerce store on WordPress and Woo Commerce within a months time. Post this project I also set up my own personal blog where I write about Aviation trends in India. Having a little background in Technical Support and being a developer myself, I wanted to help other people use WordPress and show them how easy it could be to set up a website. This makes me feel great giving back and contributing to the community.

In fact, currently as a side income, I also run a website http://www.gavki.com which sells authentic Indian food, handicrafts and herbal products. Do check it out if you get time and feel free to poke holes and send back any feedback that you may have 🙂

You can send feedback to me on: feedback@gavki.com
