home portfolio resume contact me about me


I have created this profile to introduce myself and my work to you. Hope you find all the information you need!

I am currently working as Information Architect at American Express in New York City. I am working on creating a seamless platform for employees to complete their day-to-day tasks, be it related to their projects or be it employee benefits, vacation time, booking a travel or finding information. My team and I are striving to get this portal to different platforms including tablets and mobile devices.

After completing my under-graduation in Information Technology from University of Mumbai, I joined the Indian corporate industry as a software engineer. While doing quality assurance for various software products, I realized that it is not enough to deliver products with quality only but they need to be usable too. I believe that all the electronic gadgets that have become an integrated part of our life need to provide us the joy of having them instead of being a burden for learning them. And this aim drew me to the field of Human Computer Interaction. I graduated in Masters program in Human-Computer Interaction from Rochester Institute of Technology.
I am passionate about UX Research and Design field and looking for opportunities to work in the field of user experience design field.
Please have a look at my portfolio.Thank you for visiting my portfolio
