Born in Andman & Nicobar islands, surrounded with nature and creativity. I believe in simplicity and feel that simplicity is itself a fashion. 

CORPORATE EXPERIENCE In December 2011, I moved from New Delhi to Doha, Qatar to to become the first designer of Renaissance City Center Hotel, Doha during its pre opening days. It was a learning experience looking after the design requirements for the Renaissance Doha City Center Hotel, Marriott Executive Apartments and Courtyard by Marriott. We designed everything from scratch from sign boards to bill folders. We did interesting campaigns for newly opened bars to fine dining restaurants. I enjoyed doing wall branding and setting new brand standards for restaurants inside the hotel. In June 2013, I was promoted to Marriott International Head Office in Dubai as a Graphic Designer for the nine brands of Marriott. I was totally Marrottised by now loving the way they work and treat their employees.To get experience at different firms, I moved to The Address Dubai Mall in 2015. 

THE BACKGROUND
I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Graphic Design Major) from The University of Amity, New Delhi, India. Soon after graduation, I started working for various design studios like Green Goose design Studio. My experience in Green Goose Design Studio taught me the importance of minimalism in creativity. I learnt a lot on type based designs. I worked for PS design studio  I learnt the basics of EPUB and interactive pdfs for Ipads.


Not to get bored with work life, I wanted to do something different that could give me peace and fun. So thought to do art workshops to create a union of lazy artists. For the last one year, me and my art nerd friends have been holding free Photoshop workshops and Photo tour. Artists from different nationalities join my workshop and I coach them about basics of Photoshop. In our workshops, we get to meet many young entrepreneurs who want to start their own business but could not afford to pay to designers for their logos and branding. We started holding free Illustrator lessons as well for them to help them make their own business cards and logos. I have been fortunate enough to have been recognised for my workshops by Timeout Dubai in 2015. In 2016 I would aim to teach them video editing softwares too so that they could use them for their weddings:)
