My Story

I come from a Computer Science background, that gives me a strong background in research, communication, and knowledge of the technology industry. I was driven to design because I saw potential design has in bringing about change in both human behavior and culture. I am having an urge to quote Caroline Sinders- "Design can be an equalizing action that distills code and policy into understandable interfaces". I think design can empower people. It can change users' behavior and needs.

They say "Charity begins at home", my first brush with the design was at home. My mother is better at finding solutions to things than my dad, and the difference in the way they approached the problem was that my dad being an engineer would look at things from a logical perspective and dive deep into the ins and beyond. While my mom could find a practical fix that would not just work but was innovative too. I would say she is more ad-hoc than my dad. She has a creative side to her and here I am now using a mix of the best :)
