Being from the town of Dehradun in foothills of Himalayas, I had been working with natural building materials all my life. I always had an interest in building with what is available in nature. Studying Architecture helped me in understanding buildings more into details. In my past nine years of experience I have worked in various projects which provided me a vast scope of learning. I worked with Bamboo, mud, lime surkhi, cement concrete and much more materials that presented variety of exposure with construction materials. I also had been working with various conservation and restoration along with Indian Government.
