I appreciate the time you spent reading a little about me.
I was born and raised in different parts of India, which made me interact with humans from various socioeconomic backgrounds. My treasured childhood memories are trying to draw everything around me, listening to my father and grandmother tell bedtime tales, and going on short family vacations by train or bike. My passion for storytelling, art, and travel all contributed to my love of design. I grew up observing people’s relationships with their environment, fascinated by the roles of design and technology in people’s interactions with everyday objects.
My journey as a designer was rather startling, as I chose a startup that trusted me with my design skills over an exceptional offer from a multinational organization. I have experience working on projects of various shapes and sizes, from a lengthy end-to-end UI/UX for learning management systems to a basic product launch website. I am detail-driven with a proven ability to achieve goals and manage multiple project deadlines. I’m always learning, developing new skills and techniques, maintaining my curiosity, and blatantly asking questions. Through my experience, I believe in challenging current processes, systems, and ideas to better understand their dynamics. I aim to contribute to solving problems, conceptualizing ideas, and enhancing human experiences to promote greater inclusion in society.
I love cooking 👩🍳, eating cheesecakes 🍰, critiquing films 📽️ (especially Bollywood), and talking about emotions 🙃!
