I have masters in Design Management from SCAD, Savannah and a 5 year work experience as a Designer & Entrepreneur, prior to that. I was recently working as a Workplace Strategist with Gensler in Boston. My expertise lies in spatial and product design, brand expression, ethnographic and contextual research. I am well experienced in designing for diverse realms of corporate, retail and mixed-use spaces. My responsibilities as a designer involved- space planning, creation of furniture plans, management of budgeting, vendor and client relations, researching and sourcing materials, sourcing a wide range of furniture, materials and finishes, lighting, etc.
My graduate projects on Brand and Strategy design further speak to my skills in successfully integrating market research and user centric design. Lastly, my recent experience as a consultant on workplace strategy at Gensler has helped me gain the analytical skills to strategise and program corporate workplaces and real estate planning & development.
I am proficient in softwares like ACAD, Adobe CS5, Revit, Sketchup and Microsoft Office .
