Do Epic Shit
About me
Interaction Designer, Data Scientist, Data Visualizer, a Maker at heart with a healthy disregard for the impossible. I love technology, books, sometimes people.
Slightly elaborate, impatient, hyperactive; although I think these are good qualities most of the time. There is a perpetual battle between the meticulous and the fast; most times I prefer fast*.I have completed a Masters in Interaction Design (HCI) from IDC IIT Bombay.
I am available to build things, consult, talk or you can buy me beer!

*Although while making this website 'meticulous' won. I coded all the css styles, javascript/css animations, the filtering script on the home page. Making your own website is truly an exercise in self-exploration. And I'm proud for the most part.
