About me

Over the course of my study and opportunities in India, Dubai and London I have had the pleasure to learn from some of the most talented people and work in some of the most dynamic and collaborative spaces! Previously having worked at Unilever and Tata Elxsi, HQ (a part of the $100 billion Tata group and one of Asia's largest design firms) I would be drawing from my experience in identity, branding, strategy and working with clients such as Xerox, Lenovo, IBM, Jaguar Land Rover, Castrol, Taj Hotels, Marico, Knorr and Brooke Bond. I enjoy handwritten postcards, ginger tea and the humour and warmth of the mundane.
