I stumbled into technical writing in 1999 and joined Novell Software (networking). Stayed there for 5+ years and then took a break to travel around India. Joined Oracle in April 2005 (pharmaceutical division). In August 2008 I joined Cadence Design Systems (EDA) and worked there until May 2013. After which I quit and worked in the social sector with the Piramal Foundation before I moved to my Writer Residency at Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart.
