Shailesh Prakash is a Lead Program Manager in MSN Shopping. He spent the last decade working for the “dark side” – Sun Microsystems and AOL – but finally saw the light and came to work for the greatest company in the world, Microsoft! He has a Bachelors and Masters degree in Computer Science, and incidentally still in the process of paying back the student loans for his MBA.

He adores his two year old daughter, Nina, and has his wife Kalpna’s permission to claim the fact that he is indeed *the* boss in the house. Shailesh and his family live in Redmond, and enjoy gardening, horseback riding and going for long walks. He works out when he can and has been claiming that he will lose the extra 20 lbs within six months for the last 5 years!
