About 

I am a Master of Architecture Graduate (2021) from SUNY University at Buffalo, NY. I studied broadly in the areas of Architecture, Urban Design and Inclusive Design with strong academic background in Design and Research. With 3 years of architectural experience in India, I pursued my Architecture Licensure under Council of Architecture India. Currently, I’m working as an Architect Intern in an AEC firm on various Residential, Mixed-use, Hotels and Healthcare developments.I‘m currently enrolled in NCARB credits to pursue Architecture licensure in the US and also working towards achieving the LEED Green Associate certification.

Completing my Master’s in Architecture, working as an architect intern, pursuing my Architecture Licensure and LEED Green Accreditation are all part of the process of this learning curve. As I progress, I would also like to explore the aspect of sustainability into the practice. And I’m certain that I would be able to continue working with industry professionals with similar approach and collaborative culture.

I’m a firm believer of what Ar. Bernard Tschumi perfectly described as ‘Form Follows Fiction’ as ‘Storytelling’ in Architecture. Architecture gives birth to a structure with a story for people who live there and how that story influences our lives every day.
