Explorer & Lifelong Learner
I was born in India, grew up in Africa and moved to the U.S. for college. Travel has opened me up to understanding how different cultures work.
I'm also deeply fascinated by what drives human behavior and explore that through writing. The collection of short stories I'm currently writing features fictional South Asian characters responding to real events that took place in the 1980s. I also review books and interview authors on my blog.
My kids inspire me to try new things. Their enthusiasm for art has gotten me interested in painting in acrylics.
My journey from marketing to design
I started my career in market research and social media marketing. I discovered UX when I was working in marketing at a startup and designed the onboarding screens of their shopping app. With my marketing background, I bring a dual perspective - I aim to balance user needs with business goals. I'm excited about creating products that make a positive impact in people's lives.
