Hello! Namaste!

You have reached the online domain of Suhail Halai! Feel free to move around, relax, and enjoy your stay - click on the links on the left, take a look at some of my projects, and some solutions to everyday consumer problems, and some of my favorite links.

I am best described as the creative-genius, innovator-on-demand, budding entrepreneur, adventure-hunter, in-house-inventor, once-upon-a-scientist, tech-support-for-family-and-friends. Among my other interests, I love traveling across the country, enjoying the diversity of the land and taking in the human experience. Some part of me wants to be a social scientist, another wants to be an economist, and yet another wants to be the entrepreneur with the "next" hit idea (I already have a couple in my head). In the meanwhile, I spend time absorbing the business and technology environment, and sparking new ideas over coffee.

I work for a fast paced startup, aptly called iRise. It is a Management Consulting firm started by some brilliant Accenture alumni. We are at the cutting edge of a nascent software visualization industry. I work as a Senior Consultant, helping our clients integrate our product and strategy into their processes.

Previously, I worked with BearingPoint (formerly KPMG Consulting), in the Financial Services Practice as a Business Consultant for over 3 years. I have also had a couple of stints at SunTrust and several key projects in the Financial Industry.

I obtained my Bachelor of Business Administration degree in MIS (Management Information Systems) from the University of Georgia, Terry College of Business (UGA Alumni, Class of 2003).
