UX & Product Designer in Bangalore, Karnataka

About

I'm a UX & Product Designer who design products that export from my 💻 🏠 to the 🌎.

I am an Engineer turned into a self-taught Product Designer. I have spent the last few years learning, practising, and creating User-Centered Experience Design and Web Design.

I can help brands envision even the wildest ideas and turn them into beautiful designs, unforgettable experiences, and memorable brands.

I believe in promoting minimalism through ethical design without taking the excitement from the digital experience.
