Hi, I am Rushil! Most of my friends know me as a techie, but I love more than just technology! I have a strong passion for leadership and entrepreneurship and I have launched a start-up and non-profit.
I really enjoy giving back to the community through my non-profit, Project enVision. At Project enVision, I teach many free Robotics/Computer Science classes in the Bay Area, incubate new non-profits, and build sustainable STEAM programs in Title-I schools. My connection to the youth led me to serve as the District 8 Youth Commissioner for the City of San Jose.
In my free time, I tinker with software and hardware and engage with the open source and white hat community. I also do some research, and you can find some of my papers/findings on my site. I occasionally share topics regarding cyber security and programming on my blog.
You can also find me on Twitter supporting my favorite sports teams! I love talking sports, any type!
