About Me : Chandoo
I am your CEO here, Chief Excel Officer. My full name is Purna Duggirala. Chandoo is my nick name and I used it as my domain name too. I have an MBA from IIM Indore and Computer Science degree from Andhra University. I am passionate about Data Analytics and Visualization and this blog is my platform for sharing what I learn about Microsoft Excel and new ways of presenting data. I have been awarded MVP status in 2009 by Microsoft (and renewed in 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013). My MVP profile is here.
I am married to Jo, my college sweetheart. During September 2009, we became parents to 2 beautiful and naughty twins. A boy and girl. Life has been hectic and incredibly fun ever since. (here is a pic). We are based out of India, but we travel around the world and meet new people and cultures all the time. As of April 2010, I have quit my day job to become full time entrepreneur. You can read about my journey as a start-up owner at Startup Desi.
