About Me

I am an experienced professional with over 15 years of industry experience in technology and consulting across telecom, security, transportation, executive search, digital media, customs, government and retail sector. I love open-source technologies and a keen user.

Passionate about systems thinking and helping others in learning technology. I believe in learning concepts over tools and collaborating with people over managing them.

In my free time I co-host a podcast on technology and learning about various aspects of software testing.

I am also a fully licensed UK ham radio operator, an active practitioner of yoga, and have studied Introduction to Astronomy and Introduction to Astrophysics short-term courses from Royal Observatory Greenwich.

I love travelling and trying new things. In 2018-2019, I back-packed South America over land and by air, with my partner. In 2017 I travelled on a motorbike in the Leh region of India, with friends.

So far I have tried skydiving, scuba diving, para gliding, paddle boarding, bouldering, running a vertical kilometer, public speaking, cycling London to Paris in 24 hours, finishing Tough Guy, running 10kms, building my own website, and learning browser automation from scratch.

Podcast Host

I currently host a weekly podcast with Rinat Malik called Tech Talk with Amit & Rinat
