About

Who am I? I'm a systems thinker and award-winning designer, currently working at Reva Technology designing product and user experience for the multi-family real estate space. I've got over 9 years of experience designing for domains like enterprise, security, non-profit, learning, e-commerce and lifestyle.

What drives me? What I love most about design is the myriad opportunities to break bad status-quos - systems that are stuck in a rut because that was how they were always designed. I believe that the best way to design solutions is to tackle leverage points in the system.

What else do I love? Music, cooking and yoga are important creative outlets for me. I'm a carnatic, jazz, blues, and rock vocalist and have over 14 years of performing experience. Homely vegetarian food is my culinary specialty.

Availability
I am looking for full-time product design roles in companies that strive to bring about lasting social and technological changes. If you have an idea for a collaboration, hit me up and we could this over a hot cup of my special chai!
