About

With a passion to design powerful & compelling user interfaces that can empathize with end users and players alike, I have worked in the video game, application software, web portals and in many other fields of the entertainment industry, for more than 11+ years.
With over 4+ years of dedicated experience on multiple AAA titles in the gaming industry, I have worked with a variety of clients all across the globe and have been a part of many a challenging project.
My work with a multitude of people from diverse cultures and varied walks of life has helped inspire me to become an innovator. A quality I share with like-minded people from Nashik, India. The result of which is the co-founding of the Kumbhathon organisation. A platform for social innovation to work towards a better tomorrow. I have worked with scientists and innovators from MIT Media Lab from its varied streams and aim to inspire students as a mentor and hope that my involvement and passion for innovation will help them in their endeavours.
Our combined passion helped drive Kumbhathon to success by taking it to TEDX and INKTalk stage with the MIT Kumbha team in the month of November 2014. Following which we were also invited to attend the Kumbha Conference at Boston, US on April 2015. Eventually, we hope to help establish an innovation center in Nashik, India, that will address the problems put forth by modern times.

 

I am also a coffee connoisseur and a pet lover with an eye for design, A soul that searches for art, The heart of a biker and a mind that constantly works to help my fellow human beings and animals.
