About Me

I’m passionate about digital design and thrive to be better at it.

In Short

I hold a Master’s Degree in Computer science and a bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology and have done various certifications related to Human-Computer Interaction and Design.

I have around 14+ years of experience in designing digital products for the web and mobile app ecosystem. I have worked across different industry verticals and am not afraid to learn a new vertical.

I hail from a small town (Tenkasi, India), completed my bachelor’s at Karunya Institute of Technology (Coimbatore, India), and my Master’s at Manipal University(Chennai, India) now based in the USA(Powder Springs, GA).  

 

My Career Path

My foray into design and code started during my undergrad. I was fascinated by Linux and the open-source technologies around it. Particularly with the introduction of HTML/CSS, my journey into web design started with my first ever theme design for WordPress website. 

As the web 2.0 era started and particularly with the introduction of iPhones, I have designed many projects for the iOS app ecosystem as well as for the Android ecosystem. All the while I have also been developing for the responsive web, as the adoption of mobile-first design took root.

Design and technology evolve rapidly daily and we have to learn and adapt to it, so I have. Over the course of my career, I have learned different design tools such as Sketch, Adobe XD, UXpin, and now Figma depending upon the needs of the project.

 

Though I have not mastered all the skills, I am still learning from the greater UX/UI community at large and strive to improve my skill day in and out to provide better service for my clients/customers through my projects.
