I'm a recent graduate from Parsons School of Design in New York, majoring in Web and Mobile product design. I'm also currently part of a one year start-up studio programme at Cornell Tech in New York City, where I’ve worked with Verizon, won a health-tech hackathon and i’m currently building a startup with graduate students from Cornell University!. My love for travel drove me to study a semester abroad at Central Saint Martins in London over the spring semester of 2016, where I majored in Graphic design. Well, that's enough about education.

My interest in the field of design in technology started when I first moved from Bangalore, India to New York City in 2013 and noticed the drastic changes in technology around me. My home had been transformed into an unfamiliar digital image on a screen and my roots into network cables. I hated being away from home but I loved how close technology brought me to it, it always gave me a way to go back, even if it was virtual.
Most of my work focuses on the idea of the constant evolution of technology in the modern world. I like to focus on the most essential elements of design to improve user functionality without leaving out the part that makes a design unique.
