Hi, I'm Jay Kannaiyan.

I'm an adventurer turned software engineer with a passion for product management and data privacy.


I love exploring the world and building products and services to improve people’s lives. Along the way I've been a product design engineer, motorcycle adventurer across 37 countries, entrepreneur in the air quality space, technical product manager, full stack software engineer and now software architect at IBM. I've also recently published my first book, Riding Towards Me. On this site, you can find my musings about software, travel, and food.
