I am currently managing a team of designers and developers on an educational game to help generate awareness about climate change. I have lead two entrepreneurial ventures up until now, an Augmented Reality game for kids and a Virtual Reality game for young adults. Over time, these skills have accrued to shape me into a people-person.

I believe that stories are the most powerful tool for human connection and have extended my user experience design, journalism and computer science knowledge to designing 3D products and innovative story-telling.

I chose to design products for users,after I graduated as a Bachelor Of Computer Science and Technology from University of Pune, India. While pursuing my master’s in Digital Media from Vancouver, I had opportunities to work with Relic Entertainment and Blackbird Interactive on prototypes where I played User Experience designer and product manager roles.

When not pushing pixels, coding, or attending conferences about innovative design and tech, I can be found geeking out with the latest Nintendo games or enjoying the mountains in Vancouver. I also enjoy volunteering with local climate change solution teams and organizations.
