A product designer and digital media professional with 5+ years of work experience in design and technology. I believe design creates communicative value by filling gaps with effective creative solutions. I recently completed MS in Integrated Digital Media at New York University and graduated in May 2019.
Latest Achievement: I have been instrumental in winning a grant of $10000 as Team Lead for NYC Media Lab XR Startup Bootcamp for creating a multi-modal VR application for accessibility which originated as a solution for the inclusive design challenge by Microsoft. I was also able to successfully pitch the concept at the Exploring Future Reality event in front on 500+ people.
Objective: I enjoy creating designs which empower, engage and excite people by using user-centered design practices to develop inspiring, intuitive and impactful products, services and solutions that add value. I aspire to explore emerging new media technologies and design meaningful experiences for the user in the physical and digital world. I aim to help people interact easily with digital interfaces, fulfill their thoughtful aspirations and creatively contribute to significant development and progress of society all through the medium of accessible user experience and product design.
Passions: Color Psychology, Snow, Jigsaw Puzzles, Sunsets, Dolphins, Piano, Lego, Aurora Borealis
Interests: I enjoy playing Basketball, Badminton and adore Hiking, Camping and indulging in Adventurous Sports. I am fascinated by Numismatics, Traveling, Photography, and am quite the Poetess. Having varied passionate interests have compelled me onto a quest to find my Ikigai. A strong believer of the Yin-Yang theory, I quote Calvin, “If good things lasted forever, would we appreciate how precious they are?”View Resume
