About me

I started my design journey back in 2012. Since then, I have worked in multi-disciplinary design fields, both in academic and professional realms. I completed my masters in design for manufacture at Bartlett, University College London. After spending some time in architecture firms, I currently work as a design expert with a tech company - Cloobot Techlabs, India. My education and work experience has been consistently focusing on various aspects in the world of design.

I spend my free time making digital art, cooking or caught in discussions about innovative design trends in the market.

I passionately enjoy working with individuals in finding creative opportunities within projects. Absolutely love engaging with and inspiring students!
