Who i am
Tech nerd, gamer, father and husband
Hey there! I’m Shayaan Faruqi, but as over the years people have botched the pronunciation of my name, feel free to call me ‘Shy’! I’m an active competitive gamer (though I was a lot better in my college days!), a father of three boys and I’ve been married for 10 years.
However, this is my online resume and blog — but that whole “blogging” thing I’ve not really taken too seriously!
I’ve climbed the ladder of the corporate world from doing plain old helpdesk work, to systems engineering, to architecture and now as a technology executive leading large sized programs (mostly cloud!). I encourage you to take a peek here and at my LinkedIn, and get in touch if you have any questions.
Thanks for visiting!
Focus on Digital Transformation -- including cloud, automation, and most importantly -- culture change.
