About Me

  • I was born to a doctor father and loving mother in India and grew up with my elder brother who was my friend and guide. In my spare time I enjoy watching newly released films. I also love traveling and exploring new locations, people and cultures-- I have visited 25 different countries around the world and these experiences have inspired my artistic motivation.​​​​​​​

  • Senior quote:
    My passion has remained unchanged.

  • Why did you choose VCD?
    At the tender age of 5, I participated in a art competition and I finished second in my class. This early experience laid the foundation for my eventual dedication to design and art. After completing my high school education in India, with a huge support from my parents, I flew to the opposite side of the world to pursue my dreams of becoming a professional graphic designer.

  • What inspired you to be a graphic designer?
    I wanted to shift from being a fine art student to an emotional and expressive designer.

  • Favorite keyboard shortcut:
    Command+Z

  • Worst VCD moment:
    When I first had to start working in Creative Cloud and I did not know how to open a document on Indesign to start working. I needed five people to show me until I could create a page to work on.

  • Best VCD moment:
    Getting a scholarship to intern abroad in Prague, Czech Republic.

  • What inspires you the most?
    When we work in multi-disciplinary teams and develop products from the ideation phase to implementation, this helps me to engage in the creative process.

  • Goals in 5 years:
    To work in a global design company that provides evolution, sustainability and positive impact through design.

  • What job would you be terrible at?
    I would be terrible at being a waitress! I would drop everything.

  • What is your #1 pet peeve?
    People not cleaning after themselves and/or wasting electricity.

  • What is the luckiest thing that has ever happened to you?
    I have been fortunate enough to travel all around the world, even through the deepest ravines of the Nile because of my parents support and their hard-work.
