On a personal note, Sanjay is a husband and a father of two. He loves to ski with his kids whenever his wife and the back permits. Sanjay loves mentoring young kids and coached both his daughter’s Odyssey of the Mind team and son’s First Lego League Robotics team. He is also in a life long pursuit of learning to mix flavors and spirits to come up with interesting cocktails. The family follows Bay Area sports teams closely and are super excited about Golden State Warriors! They are hoping 49ers would be able to turn it around soon.
