My professional interests include architecture, design and urban environments. 


I have gained experience at studios that have been at the forefront of critical design thinking and practices in India. I am currently a Principal Architect at RMA architects, a design firm based in Mumbai (India) and previously was an Associate Architect at 44 Design and Dhruti Vaidya Design Studio. In July 2017, I was selected to participate in a two week workshop held by Pritzker awardee Glenn Murcutt in Australia.  


My primary focus is on design and implementation with particular attention to detailing and materiality. My work is characterized by strong integration within the surroundings and I consistently explore opportunities to contribute simplicity and elegance to the built environment. I have over 11 years of experience with all the various scales of the profession - from strategy to planning and from building to interiors. I have collaborated on a wide range of projects - learning environments, housing (single and multi-users), recycling of old structures, restoration, offices, restaurants and retail outlets.


I am a member of Council of Architecture (India) and hold a Bachelors of Architecture from Sir JJ College of Architecture, Mumbai.
