I’m a licensed Architect registered with Council of Architecture, India. Having worked for more than two years where I was fortunate to have the opportunity to hone my organizational & presentation skills along with good teamwork and management expertise. By nature, I am a progressive thinker and fascinated by creative and constructive ideas. It's my endeavor to bring out emotions into the environment keeping the design & techniques intact. Apart from my love for architecture I also enjoy photography, reading, camping, exploring new places and most importantly connecting with new people.
