Bio

A Sr. UX Designer with a passion for user-centred design, I have over 8+ years of industry experience. Striving not only keep up-to-date with current trends, but also to push the envelope on what’s possible with today’s technology. I believe in collaborating with a broad spectrum of individuals to create amazing user experiences. A problem-solver, versed at translating complex business requirements into user-focused, interactive solutions.

 

I am skilled across user-centred design methods like user research, secondary research, insight generation, storyboard and crafting low and high fidelity prototypes. I have experience in multiple domains- Finance, Education, Travel, Fitness, Telecom and Healthcare projects. Have led the design team and coordinated multiple-projects while adhering to delivery schedules.

 

When I am not designing, you can find me reading, sketching, playing tennis on food trails.
