About 

I am a recent graduate from the Indian Institute of Technology(IIT) ,Roorkee, looking for an entry level architect position in a creative and Innovative Design Studio.  

         I am very aspiring and ambitious in my design approach. My design process begins by questioning the relevance of the conventions and experimenting with novel solutions.

        I believe i can contribute positively to the firms i work with.  Given my previous internship experiences( 6 internship in Germany, US, India) , my understanding of practical applications of architecture have matured considerably. 

          Although i am a citizen of India, i am a US Greencard holder which enables me to work in the US. I am currently in Colorado doing an internship.
