I am interested in visual digital storytelling and in combining technology and art for education.
I was born in in New Delhi, India and lived there till I graduated high school, when I came to Los Angeles for doing my B.Sc. in Computer Science at UCLA. Computers were my first love and I learned a lot of different software and languages and am now pretty proficient in most of them and use my skills for various purposes.
As I did a lot of front end development, I got more interested in designing the experiences for users instead of just developing them. So I started learning more about UI and UX design and worked as a design apprentice a Blind, a design studio in Santa Monica. I learnt a lot about User Centric Design, UX Facilitation and Design Thinking which I now incorporate in all my designs.
I interned as a designer at startups and agencies like GoGuardian, Blind, Use All Five and Schoolinks and developed the website for the TV show Bates Motel. I am currently interning as a UI Engineer at Facebook and am also invoved in a number of clubs on campus. I am the President of Creative Labs at UCLA and an organizer at LA Hacks.
I am a fun person to talk to, and love meeting people and making friends. So feel free to drop me a message and I might just drop by with a box of pizza and some good music for a chat!
