About 

To my understanding as an Architect and Designer, I am highly responsible for the development and progress of the society I live in. I am passionate about learning and contributing  value to the organization that I work for. I am committed towards the success and betterment of the city and community and willing to design for the future development in the field of Architecture, Densification, Urban Design and Materiality.  Furthermore, I like to explore designing in several digital mediums and physical materials. Learning new materials, technologies always attracts me, as we can serve better if we too are updated with the innovations.
