InVision
I enjoy making things, creating things that did not exist yesterday. I am curious about the users who'd use them, how they behave, what disappoints them and more importantly what makes them feel confident and productive.

Design to me is about creating memories - small or big, meaningful or valuable, short-term or long-term. With 5 years of cumulative experience in engineering and design, and with a Masters in HCI, I lead by example as a designer who thinks holistically, at scale and most importantly about the needs of the user and the business.

At Adobe, I have had the opportunity to work closely with leadership on product, marketing and support strategy and design, conduct design workshops and set standards for design documentation which is something that I specialize in. Along the way, I bootstrapped several intiatives including DesignOps and creating an Inclusive Design mindset.

Listening to podcasts is my favorite pastime. How I Built This, The Tim Ferris Show, Masters of Scale, Vergecast are some of them that make the top of the list. I like being around people and having interesting conversations. Feel free to contact me for talking anything design.
