about me

Hello there, and thanks for stopping by…

This page is – yes you know, about me!

Well, I am a software engineer but still a student pursuing masters in design research from NIFT. Being from a technical background, and subsequently entering a creative domain, has had a great impact on my overall approach towards life. Some say, life is all about settling down, but I do not believe in stagnation. For me, settling down means death. I love movement, and I love migration, we all are urban-nomads after all!

I am an avid-traveler, and I swear by the phrase because I explored half (if not full) of India all alone, independently! Belonging to a small town of Punjab (Ludhiana), I am studying in Kerala, did my internship in Bangalore, and I had frequent stop-bys in Mumbai, Delhi and some other places. I am enthusiastic about research, and that is one reason I want to pursue my career in User Experience (UX) Research.

Apart from being a writer (with one novel, and four short-stories published in beautiful anthologies under my name), I love animals, coffee and animals who drink coffee (not literally though). When not on my laptop, I am sometimes spotted in the kitchen experimenting with edible items, trying my best to make them unsafe to eat! Just kidding! I cook good food, and by good I mean typical Punjabi home-style North-Indian food.




Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they've had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people. Steve Jobs
