“After completing the CD Course from Pearl Academy, I have undertaken a number of interior projects for thematic spaces ranging from furniture, false ceiling, wall cladding, to doors and lighting. I have designed projects on themes such as Sustainability, and residential interiors based on a set design concept. Currently I am designing a resort in Palampur, an interactive self-sustaining project which aims to use minimum intervention from outside.”

I turned my passion into a profession. I design for love and not for money; this is what has kept me going. As a freelancer, I have worked with some wonderful clients like Pepsi Co., Parag Milk, Community Empowerment Lab and The Terai Tiger Trust, to name a few. Each assignment has helped me grow tremendously. Currently, I am working with B & V Design Pvt. Ltd. It’s been a fabulous journey that started with experimenting and having fun in college to facing real clients in the real world and now designing for the length and breadth of the country.
