Hello! 😃

I’m a Product designer based in Pune, India. I’m a self-taught designer with over 6+ years of experience in the design industry. I’ve worked on a different range of projects right from designing (also implemented some in the past) simple native mobile apps, websites, and web apps for start-ups and scale-ups, to complex, data-heavy systems and platforms. Whether it is doing extensive research, writing user stories, designing wireframes, or crafting the design prototypes for a visual design, I bring the quality of work and my creative design brain to the table.

My main focus is to design product(s) that are simple, easy-to-use, and efficient by keeping the user in the center of the design process.

For me, design is a problem-solving activity and a journey to always learn something from. I’m continuing this journey to design my brain so that it can solve human problems. 😉

Moreover, if you want to talk about traveling, football, or your design idea, don’t hesitate to reach out.
