Soni Kapoor, originally from India, grew up in the Himalayas. Soni has always been passionate about the positive impact of science (+ technology) with the art of storytelling. Exactly 21 years after he participated in high school stage play on Bhagat Singh (charismatic Indian revolutionary), he found his way to SBMT as deck crew for On the Town in April 2022.
Soni studied electronics and computer engineering in college and moved to Buffalo, NY for graduate school. After completing studies, he moved to Portland, OR as a design engineer at Intel, got his private pilot license, and started taking his family and friends to the sky. And finally in 2015, he ended up in Silicon Valley. Soni is now in a high-tech company, Synopsys, working as a product and marketing manager.
When not at work, he is spending most of his time with his beautiful wife (+high-school sweetheart) and an amazing six-year-old son. You can find them flying around the Bay area, hiking/biking on the trails, and looking up at the night sky with a bunch of telescopes at dark sites, or just singing, dancing, and cooking at home.
For the past 10 years, Soni has been collaborating with various non-profits to empower kids with social emotional intelligence and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). Soni is looking forward to learning a lot and contributing in making n+1 version of SBMT!
