I have always been a topper throughout my highscool education. While choosing the graduation course, instead of following the toppers trend of enginnering degrees, I decided to follow my right brain and enter into the creative field of design. I completed my graduation in Interior Space and Equipment Design, from MIT Institute of Design, Pune, India. This course has given me a sound overall knowledge of leading design edge principles, tools and practices, with emphasis on attention to detailing and aesthetics of design.I am attracted to the challenges offered by this field. I look forward to get an oppourtunity to explore design at International level. Strengths: Research, Process, Planning
