About Me

I am a designpreneur, photographer, blogger and a UX designer. I run a cool work place (Maya Studios, founded in 2008) and do cool things on weekends - travel, photography, cooking, writing, etc. I like to work on projects cutting across domains and I consider this as my biggest asset/strength. My passion for photography gives acute observational and perceptive insights which helps me do my work better.

I have great interest in in cross-cultural social issues and emerging technologies. Being in the field working with real people is what I like best.

Specialties: I solve problems and get things done.
