About 

I am a practicing Interior Architect & Designer with a master's in Interior Architecture from RISD and a bachelor's in Industrial Design from DJ Academy of Design, India.

My work bridges the possibilities between architecture and industrial design by working on the products - analog and digital - that define spaces and the experiences they provide.
