I describe myself as a creative enthusiast with a passion for solving problems, big or small. It was the urge of exploring the areas of technology & human behavior that brought me to Masters of Human Computer Interaction program at Carnegie Mellon University. I don't believe in being bound by design disciplines & appreciate co-working with experts from different fields.

Till date, I have earned a degree in animation and film design, finished hundreds of sketchbooks, learned 5 languages, hoarded and devoured comic books (I love Epileptic and Maus), got operated for a deviated nasal septum (sounds so cool right?), grown up in Oman, studied in India & travelled around the world.

I am seeking the role of an Interaction/Product Designer starting Fall 2018.

I value organisations that work on diverse projects and take initiatives to help their employees grow. Colleagues that respect & learn from each other, maintain a healthy work-life balance and love food are the kind I dream about.
