The Basics 🥸
I'm a communication design graduate from Parsons School of Design and a product designer in the autonomous vehicle space at Motional. Prior to this, I completed a 6 month internship at Wayfair and have also interned at design agencies and tech startups.
In my free time, I love making art (Check out my work here🎨). I also enjoy trying food I haven't had before, and singing along to YouTube karaokes when no one's around!

My Journey Into UX 🦾
I started off my journey as a fine artist and moved on to graphic design seeing as the world is becoming increasingly digital. I then discovered UX design in my sophomore year of college and was immediately drawn to it. The emphasis on research and insight-driven processes added a layer of objectivity and measurable impact to visual design, allowing me to ground design decisions in empathy rather than my own assumptions and biases.
Growing up in India, I come from a culture where failure is very rarely tolerated. In my own act of rebellion I chose a field wherein, through rounds of user-testing and iteration, failure seems almost necessary to arrive at a successful solution.
