I know a lot about:

Digital Design Personal Branding Illustration Social media Small Business Marketing Thought Leadership Visual Design UI/UX Design Education User Research

I am the go-to for:

Helping you turn your idea into a minimum viable product.

I can help you:

  • Turn your idea into a minimum viable product through user research, market research and product design.
  • Create a brand identity for your business that reflects your product's and/or services' personality.
  • Design digital assets and/or templates (such as e-books, email newsletter templates, social media post templates etc) for your digital marketing needs.

Why me:

Before I started designing user experiences for digital products, I illustrated children’s books, built brands and was largely involved with strategizing and bringing marketing campaigns to life. As someone who understands both marketing and product design, I add value to teams by bridging the disconnect that often exists between marketing and the user experience.

My story:

I’m a user researcher & product designer with a multidisciplinary visual arts background and 5 years working in e-commerce & SaaS. I’m passionate about educating peers, colleagues and stakeholders about the value of design.

Growing up in a flat in Abu Dhabi, I spent most of my play time indulging in arts and crafts. A huge part of my childhood book collection was “how to” books on a variety of creative activities from pencil shading and watercolours to origami and crochet. At 17, I moved to India to study art and design and there was no turning back. India was a marvellous experience with its beautiful architecture, traditional crafts and of course, great food. Two years later, I moved to England to pursue an undergraduate degree in Illustration. In 2016 I got my first full time role as a designer at a small e-commerce brand based in Bournemouth. As a key employee in a small business, I was required to wear many hats including the social media strategist and marketing manager. This sparked my interest in consumer psychology and online consumer behaviour and I decided to pursue a master's degree in digital design.

Currently based in Vancouver CA, I spend my free time making vegan desserts and watching law dramas on Netflix.

My mission:

To help design engaging and thoughtful user experiences

My greatest accomplishments:

I've lived and worked in 3 continents.
I have 2500+ hours of international design experience.
I have 2 design degrees.
I've walked across one of the longest trough bridges in Asia.

My goals:

Set up multiple sources of passive income by 2023.
Go scuba diving in Australia by 2026.
Retire at 45.
Buy a boat when I retire (I actually want a ship, but I like setting realistic goals).
