Apart from devising and designing engaging user experiences, I also pride myself for setting up and leading in-house design and development teams, hiring and mentoring talent, and streamlining business processes for optimal productivity.

Having professionally raised in start-up culture and being part of the digital revolution right from it’s infancy, I have the ability to challenge status quo to drive change.

I’m ambitious for great work and eager to make a difference by being fully aware of creative challenges, technical constraints and cross-media concerns.
