First job: my first non-corporate job during my engineering days was to teach math and computer fundamentals to high school students in my hometown to prepare them for interschool computer programming competitions. 

First corporate job: my first job was in system design and embedded programming with Genesis Microchip Inc. a San Francisco Bay Area leading chip company supplying microprocessors for Digital TV set-top boxes and LCD monitors.  

Fun fact: I love traveling and visiting unfamiliar places; hence I am lucky to have lived and worked in over 10 countries in the initial 10 years of my professional life. These days, I try to visit U.S. National parks with my kids during vacations.  

Favorite social distancing activity: playing online games with my kids and family.
