Los Altos resident Sanjeev Kulkarni was born in Hubli, an Indian city north of Bangalore. Cricket is in his blood.

“Cricket is how I grew up,” he said of the sport he played long before moving to the area and becoming vice president of engineering at Peer Nova. “Ever since I was 6, as long as I can remember, I was playing with my brother in the streets.”
