About 

An Architect + Interior Architect specialized in Adaptive Reuse, I have worked for 4+ years in various firms in India and United States in the field of Hospitality and Residential. My experiences in the past have prepared me to apply my skills to different contexts across multiple scales. The ability to be a good communicator has helped me to manage between - Client, architect, project manager, and the consultant thereby coordinating the work in an effective manner.

I perceive the process of creating spaces like a user, constantly illustrating my thoughts and immersing myself. Each project allows me to relate to the context and augment my ideas onto space as soon as I walk into.
