Designer & product manager based in California. Future of design at Adobe.

Creativity is spontaneous and unconstrained. However, our tools to create are often prescriptive and fragmented. As a self-taught designer, I’m passionate about solving this. At Adobe, I help creatives bring ideas to life.

Over the last eight years at Adobe, I’ve built tools for designers and developers. I’ve worked on flagship products with a legacy of over 20 years. I helped ship products from beta to 1.0, which over a million creatives across the globe use today. On this journey, I’ve contributed as a designer and a product manager.

I'm a Group Product Manager on Adobe XD, shaping the future of user experience design and collaboration. I lead a team of product managers and together, we reimagine key aspects of the design process.

With prototyping, we empower every designer to lead the shift from static mockups to interactive experiences. With design systems, we enable teams to collaborate better while designing at scale. I partner with marketing, research, and data science on strategy, monetization, and customer research.

Before product management, I was an Experience Designer at Adobe. I have worked on Adobe Creative Cloud, Dreamweaver, Flash, Edge Preview, and open source projects like Brackets.

Before joining Adobe, I freelanced as a designer for clients like Vh1, CRY Foundation and TEDx while studying computer engineering at the University of Mumbai. I’m excited about working on products that leverage design to make an impact and with people who are willing to challenge the status quo.

I've spoken at conferences like Adobe MAX, Microsoft Build, AIGA, Layers and delivered workshops at MIT Media Labs and SoDA - The digital society. I occasionally live stream with the team at Adobe and have conducted hands-on sessions at Adobe MAX for the last six years. I was awarded the title of Adobe MAX Master in 2016 and 2018. MAX Masters are the speakers who received a combined speaker and content score of 4.88/5 from thousands of attendees at the MAX conference. As a product spokesperson, I also engage in global press and analyst briefings. I've been featured and interviewed by Dribbble, Creative Gaga, Behance, and Photoshop Creative.

When I’m not in front of a screen, I enjoy playing beer league soccer and swimming in the San Francisco bay. I started swimming in the bay with the South End Rowing Club and completed 2 Alcatraz crossings. My weekend design projects are an excuse to explore new tools and develop new skills. I obsessively browse architecture, interior design, and cooking videos. 😉 🍩✌️🤌🏽✨ and GIFs are my preferred form of communication.
