This is the next interview in a new series in which we ask our unique and diverse Datasource Consulting staff to share a bit about themselves, both professionally and personally. We're amazed and inspired at their talents, hobbies, and aspirations, and we hope you are, too!
Years with Datasource: 1.3
Current Home City: Bangalore, India
Tell us about your experience with Datasource Consulting (DSC), including types of projects and positions held:
I have had the opportunity to work for a credit rating firm in a very good project which required me to learn SSIS. Coming from an MDM background with no knowledge of ETL and SSIS, I was very lucky to work with an amazing team and very helpful peers who helped me learn the technology very quickly. Datasource has helped me grow personally and professionally by providing exposure to a diverse group of people, and multiple technologies and trainings.
Describe life at Datasource with three unique words.
Fun, Enthralling, Captivating
Tell us what you like most about working at Datasource.
People, Flexibility, and Parties
What challenges you the most and what motivates you the most at Datasource?
Datasource requires you to continuously learn and adapt to new technologies and work with different sets of people. This is the most challenging and interesting thing at the same time.
My major source of motivation is the greed that I possess to get results and deliver. It’s an addiction. And of course, who doesn’t like to be rewarded and praised in front of 100 people?
What is on your bucket list?
The list is really long, but I’ve always wanted to learn to play guitar, which still remains in my bucket list. Next is paragliding.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
Travelling, listening to music, and dancing
What is your hidden talent?
My friends say that I am a good host and an entertainer. I can actually keep dancing for 5-6 hours without a pause.
What phobias do you have?
I am both aqua and acrophobic. But, in daily life I also have a fear of staying alone in a house or even in a room.
Tell us why you fell in love with data.
Data can say what humans can’t. I get mesmerized every time I see the data being used in different ways and the insights which are drawn from it. The day I realized the importance of data, I made it a part of my routine.
