I was born in New Delhi, India, and lived most of my life in and around the city before moving to the artistic and cultural city of Lucknow to study Architecture. My education in Architecture, and later in Industrial Design, infused in me a love for form and sculpture. Much of my work is inspired by the materials, colours and textures I see around me, and have grown up with. I am happiest when working with my hands, and prefer a more tangible approach to design and craftsmanship. I enjoy collaborating with interesting people and working with the rich crafts of India. When not designing products, I split my time between analog photography and illustration. I currently live and work in Bangalore, India.
