About Me



With a multidisciplinary skill set honed over 8+ years, I am a Product Designer based out of Bangalore, India. I am passionate about integrating user understanding, product thinking, and creative know-how. My academic foundation includes bachelor’s degree in Applied Arts from Rachana Sansad, Mumbai complemented by a post-graduate degree in Design (M.Des in Information Design) from the National Institute of Design – R&D Campus, Bengaluru.

During my 3 year tenure at Jumbotail, as a UX Designer, I specialised in conducting comprehensive user research and crafting impactful experiences tailored for diverse user segments, including Kirana Shops, Warehouse Folks, Yard Sellers, and Internal Teams. This role not only challenged me but also chiseled my design skills. It deepened my understanding of user behaviour and needs within specific contexts.

During my last role as Sr. UX Designer 1 at PayPal, I’ve had the privilege of supporting key teams such as Growth Markets (Brazil), Activity (Global), and Giving (Global). Through these engagements, I’ve gained invaluable insights into diverse user segments and global markets, enabling me to design solutions that resonate with users on a global scale. This experience has not only expanded my professional horizons but has also deepened my understanding of cultural nuances and user behaviours across different regions.

I firmly believe that design extends far beyond mere screens; it encompasses the entire user journey and has the power to shape perceptions even before direct interaction occurs. For me, the essence of design lies in the meticulous process that culminates in the creation of digital or physical products. By prioritising user-centric methodologies and fostering collaborative processes, I strive to create impactful solutions that resonate with users on a profound level.

As an experienced Product Designer with a holistic approach to design and a commitment to user-centricity, I bring a unique blend of academic rigor, industry experience, and creative insight to every project I undertake. My journey thus far has equipped me with the skills, knowledge, and passion needed to drive and create meaningful experiences for the users.
