Born and raised in Kavali,
India, I received my Master's degree in Computer Science from
Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University(JNTU), Hyderabad, India and my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering from
Nagarjuna University, India.
Since then I lived in Hyderabad, and at present I reside in Boston, USA with my wife Dr.Jayalakshmi and my kids Rithvik & Bhuvan.
I am one of the millions of Software Professionals fascinated by Internet and Java. Got my start with
AP Techonology Services Limited, India as a Programmer. Started developing my home page for fun and then got pretty much attached to it.
Started my career as a Programmer with AP Technology Services Limited, Hyderabad, India.
Then I was with Tata Consultancy Services, India for about four years. I was with
Software Solutions Group Inc. - Atlanta, GA based Computer Consulting Company for five years.
Presently I am consulting as a Senior Enterprise Java Developer in Boston, MA, USA.
When I am not writing software, I do drawing/painting. Painting is my first and foremost hobby. I love to draw/paint whenever I get time.
I don't remember when I started Drawing, but my GrandMa says that I drew a bird on the floor with a piece of chalk when I was two years old.
My oldest drawing I could preserve is the one that I drew when I was TEN years old. Without question it's my passion in life.
Some of my favorite Indian Artists are my Father, my Uncle Sudhakar Jaladanki (a great artist with multiple talents; drawing,
painting, poetry and script writing and finally made his enry into Telugu Movie Industry as a Screenplay and Dialogue Writer), my Drawing Teacher Venkateswar Rao
in my school Kodigenahalli, Raja Ravi Varma, Bapu, Uttam,
Gopi and Chandra. I like RK Laxman's and Sridhar's Cartoons. I love every line that comes from Bapu's hand. I also admire
Norman Rockwell for his wonderful Illustrations; if there is any artist that I say it is hard to master like, that is he.
My father and my uncle were great inspiration to me in my childhood. Initially I used to draw with Pen, Pencil and Indian Ink. It was one of Uttam's Paintings that
inspired me to first start Water Color Painting. I also made a couple of Sculptures on Soaps.
Drawing and Painting is just a hobby that I developed on my own interest and I never took any formal classes. I did a course on Oil Painting in Winter 2001 at
College of Dupage, Chicago, IL and here is my spectacular Art Gallery.
Drawing AWARDS/PRIZES Won
A Couple of...
First time I ever participated in any Drawing competition was in 'All-India Intercollegeate Drawing competition' held by VR Siddhartha
Engineering College on the occation of its Decennial celebrations. I won FIRST PRIZE in that competition. I also participated in a Cartooning Competition and Won SECOND PRIZE.
Of course, cartooning is not my hobby. I also bagged a couple of prizes in our College Drawing Competitions when I was doing my Engineering in Computer Science.
Many of my Drawings/Paintings were published in our college magazines.
Other than drawing and painting - I read books, listen to Indian Music, love Site Seeing, do Photography, collect Stamps & Coins, enjoy Cooking and of course
write Software for living.
