Summary
Deep Learning High Performance Computing Artificial Intelligence Sales Product Management
I ask uncomfortable questions, I challenge theories and dislike monotony

I am a Brand Sales Specialist at IBM and an MBA from Vinod Gupta School of Management, IIT-Kharagpur with a strong inclination towards Marketing and sales. I have about 20 months of corporate experience working with Tata Consultancy Services Limited as a middleware developer and now working at IBM from June 2016 in Marketing and Sales.

I am a hard working, extrovert and a fun loving person. I enjoy assignments that involve human interactions and have a high scope of learning. In sales, it's not what you say; it's how they perceive what you say.
