I like to describe myself as someone who finds joy creating objects. I have a keen interest in the subject of geometric solids, and I tend to create my objects through the forms and structures I find while exploring this subject. I did my undergraduate study in product design from DJ Academy of Design in Coimbatore in 2013. After completing my masters in furniture design from CEPT University in Ahmedabad in 2017, I started my own practice in furniture design, which I still continue today. As an enthusiast of Steampunk, I acquired a hobby of creating miniature sculptures emulating that genre; that, which delves in the realm of anachronism and fantasy. My teaching journey started in 2019 when I conducted courses on 3-D geometry at NID Gandhinagar and my teaching experiences increased to the point where I am now an assistant professor here at RV University School of Design and Innovation.
