About 

My main motivation for seeking an employment into an renowned architectural firm is to learn and explore more about design, visual, urban and technical aspects of architecture. As lack these considerations (in the present day scenario) are ruining the architectural sense,beauty and also the environmental balance (causing Global Warming). I want to partner with the best of minds working towards countering these global challenges.

For the past 1 ½ years I have been working with ATWIN, in Delhi. Here, I work as a research designer, with the focus on eco friendly designing. Apart from architecture, I am passionate about photography. I pick assignments as an amateur photographer. I have been the official photographer for events in Computer Sciences Corporation, Noida (India). I also designed a few picture portfolios for models; one of whom is Mr Aprit Kapoor, a Bollywood actor. One of my photographs got shortlisted for NGM’s daily dozen. I enjoy travelling and exploring places. I recently went to the Himalayas for trekking.
