I am an interior architect by profession, creative thinker and traveler by choice. The everyday thrive to find a central node of where business, design and architecture meets is what heeds me the most. The only rule that I believe is good focus towards design thinking and applying it sensitively to what my work reflects. An iterative process seeks to understand its users, their desires, functions, challenge assumptions and redefine problems to create more innovative and practical solutions to it.

I did my graduation form CEPT, UNIVERSITY School of Design, Ahmedabad, Gujarat. At CEPT, I got the best experience of design knowledge from one of the best of hands and mindsets present around in the entire field of Architecture & Design. The projects that I got an opportunity to work on encapsulates various aspects of design, space planning, retail designing, commercial designing, residential designing, adaptive reuse, brand building and conservation of interiors. What stays back is experience and not the product. The part that intrigued most in me was the fact how Design and Culture are correlated and the outcome of it affects us in a multi-agonal manner.

My work is the reflection of my belief in design and architectural philosophy, along with creative thinking skills to enhance it. There is a huge difference when we talk about design in books or paper and when it comes to design on land in practical. My job phase of working in Studio Ardete for around 11 months was when I learned how design is sophisticated, completely practical and human-centered. Design thinking to what comes 1:1 on ground should be actual transformation of the initial concept idealization and this could only happen if design thinking is channelized in the right direction.

I believe it is never too late to learn more and learning is not ever enough. With time, a person keeps on evolving and experiencing what life has in platter for us. My work until now has taught me to be focused and more sensitive in approach even towards the nanoscopic things around me and because design is everywhere;
