I'm a Data Analyst turned Designer with 6+ years of experience working on education, productivity, e-commerce, and onboarding flows. My focus is on research, data, motion design, prototyping, and accessibility. My background in coding and deep understanding of product and data make collaborating with product and engineering teams a joy.

I've designed and shipped products from 0-1, collaborating with cross-functional teams to achieve high-level objectives and create measurable impact. Previously, I worked at Microsoft and owned the product Microsoft Viva Learning (mobile) from its inception till GA launch. I have also worked at Urban Ladder and Samsung Research.

For the past 8 years, I’ve been dedicated to my Everyday Project focused on 3D, motion design, and creative technology, creating one design from scratch every day to continuously improve my process and skills.

Graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts with a Master’s in Human Computer Interaction (ITP) and from the National Institute of Design (NID), India with a Master’s in Interaction Design.
