There were two defining moments in my career A) When I found my calling in products: this happened when I was won an idea generation contest in Akamai and was given an opportunity to present to the Founder of Akamai Tom Leighton. B) When I understood product management is not about finding the right solution but it's about identifying the right problem.
Currently I work at Amazon and focus on making online e-commerce accessible to the next 100 million users in India. This was one of the motivating factors for me to move back from Boston. When you start looking for new markets that are going to have meteoric growth then it's going to be our untapped cities in India.
