Sooraj gave an intelligent, knowledgeable and thoughtful impression to me. He quickly grasped what I was asking for and provided nice ideas and information backed up by his experiences. He also seems to have made quite an efficient career journey which I think architect-aspiring software developers (and probably also others) can learn from.
