I’m a Product Designer, currently living in Des Moines, IA but originally from India.
The need to create beautiful design and inspired products that delighted users is what led me to pursue an undergraduate degree in Architecture, moving to Iowa to pursue a graduate degree in Interior Design. While working on interior design freelance projects and improving my portfolio, I started to get into web development to have a little more control over my portfolio layouts. Following that, I started working on a number of online courses and enjoyed working as a front end developer for 3 years at companies like Ford Motor Company and Envirta Technologies.
Constant learning is something that is very important to me, and it only made sense to be as dedicated to creating beautiful user centered design, as it was to code efficent and functional websites. That is how I came across Design Lab’s UX academy course, and after 3 months of intense coursework, I've had the opportunity to work at companies like IQ Solutions and Impaction. I enjoy problem solving, and while I got the satisfaction of a problem well solved with development, my first love was design, and it wasn't long before I made my way back to design with UX/UI design. I am passionate about being a part of the entire product life-cycle, and a product designer was the natural path to take to get there. I'm looking forward to working at great companies and meet like minded creators and teams!
