About Me

Technology & Security enthusiast, Hacker, developer, in love with w3b.

I got hooked up with w3b in a young age. I had my personal website at the age of 16 and used to make websites for small businesses for a living in my college days.

I started my career as a developer but attracted to Information Security. After a few years of effort, I was able to grab a job in Application Security!

I'm currently with Product Security team at ServiceNow. I'm one of the Chapter Leaders of Null Hyderabad chapter. I've been participating in the info sec community by presenting at Defcon, Null community events. Have been leading an open source security tool: Sh00t. I try my luck in bug bounty programs when I go out of T-Shirts and made it to some Hall of Fame.
