Interesting information about Chandra Sekharan

Not sure if this information would interest you. Outside of work and family, the things I enjoy doing are hiking, running, and playing tennis. I consider myself a 4.0 level tennis player. In the warmer months, I love to bicycle in the forest preserve area near home. I love the outdoors. I read and research a lot about successful entrepreneurship and leadership.
