Sumeet got his start in web development at Intel, where he led development of several Intel.com properties. He helped Intel transition to CSS, tableless layouts, and other “Web 2.0” techniques that (at the time) were not very widespread.
After that he worked at various startups and design agencies in San Francisco. Most recently, he led a front-end development team at AKQA to build Virtuwell.com – an online emergency room.
If he’s not coding, Sumeet is probably playing Chess, searching for the perfect glass of Bourbon, exploring the outdoors, or driving across the country.close
