About 

• An architectural designer by profession, with experience in residential, retail, commercial/ office application both in Private and Public Sector.

• During the last 10 years, I have studied and worked in cities like Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Pune, Milan, Istanbul, Brussels, etc. With over 3.5 years of professional experience my aim is to acquire and maintain a wide array of professional skills, ranging from spatial planning to analyzing and formulating strategy and policy for urban development issues, from articulating schemes to structural and building systems coordination.

• I believe learning happens beyond four walls of studios thus explaining my passion for traveling and exploring architecture/urban planning in different part of world to put it in use for my future prospects. I have travelled extensively for professional and educational purpose in India as well as European countries like Italy, Greece, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Turkey, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria, etc. collecting data in forms of Pictures, sketches and personal notes of the architectural places visited. I maintain the collected information in form an interactive blog on Internet, so as to share it with my colleagues and people around the world.

• I am a tech savvy by nature and try to use modern technology, equipment’s in my studies and project proposals thus trying to be contemporary in my designing thoughts.
