about me

Hello there, and thanks for stopping by! This page is, well…about me!

I am a software engineer and a UX Designer from NIFT (Kerala). Belonging to a technical background and subsequently making a shift to creative side has had a great impact on my overall approach towards living a meaningful life.

As a Designer, I believe that life exists in experiences – good or bad, doesn’t matter – that have an impact on your mind. Experiences that change you inside out and experiences that you would like for others to have as well. Just like you recommend a particular salon for haircut to your friends, because they gave you a free head-massage, similarly a digital product should also give a similar joy to the people – that’s the goal!

I am an avid-traveler, and I swear by the phrase because I explored half (if not full) of India all alone! Belonging to a small town of Punjab (Ludhiana), I studied in Kerala, did my internship in Bangalore, explored Mumbai during my thesis, worked as a UX Designer in a healthcare tech in Pune for six months, and now I am working as a UX Designer for an AI/ML organisation in Hyderabad.

Apart from being a writer (with one novel, and four short-stories published in anthologies under my name), I am a fun-loving person who loves to binge-watch Netflix on a weekend, and save the world from ugliness on weekdays by designing joyous interfaces & experiences!

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
