When I was 3 years old growing up in Bombay (now Mumbai), India, my mother had a vision that I would work for either Rolls-Royce or The Boeing Company. That vision came true in April 1987 when I was hired on a three-month contract as a contract drafter in Payloads Systems Engineering on the 747-400 program.
Fast-forward more than 28 years and the dream is alive and well. I've had a wonderful career, met my wife at Boeing (in 1987 as well), and we've raised an amazing family -- all thanks to the opportunities provided by Boeing. I am so proud to be a Boeing employee, and I can't wait to see what the next 100 years has in store for us.
