ABOUT ME

I have a keen interest in the creation of digital products, often wearing many hats- from interviewing health workers in rural India to delivering pixel-perfect designs of data-driven dashboards. Many a time, I’ve even found myself burning the midnight oil to squish bugs in javascript, loving every bit of it.

My philosophy with respect to design involves including the user’s perspective and inculcating their feedback throughout the multiple stages - allowing me to design usable, enjoyable and ethical products. Additionally, working with data and coming up with effective visualizations, further helps me in drawing useful inferences. You can listen to me share my views on Infoviz, and my Degree in Design.

Outside of work, I'm a Gooner till I die, an amateur musician and a LoL AD Carry.
