The experience of being a design learner for the past eight years has left a deep mark on me, and it still often gives me a pursual for so many unasked questions and untold answers. This great quest has always been directed towards me trying to figure out design in all of my works in some form.

I have enjoyed my work since the day I first got into an arts college to study Architecture, and I knew these five years of my journey were going to treat & teach me in a different way and show me what I was missing. So it happened. I took risks, diverted myself from various different paths and chose my own way of life. Studying architecture became a fuel for my other interests in life and luckily it brought me to Italy, one of the most design enriched places, to do my Masters in Interior design and Furniture design. Understanding any object's function and complexity was the integral part of my learning. Moreover, I got an extraordinary exposure through people, traveling around Europe, crossing seas and oceans, eating most delicious food and making most amazing friends which turned into an intense and overwhelming experience by the end in a positive way. Most importantly, it prepared me for the future by making me more concrete and less uncertain about it. That's a blessing.
