Something about me

I am an end-to-end designer who is energized by tackling challenging projects. Currently work as a Sr. Product Designer at Yahoo, launched 10+ features for web and mobile across different squads, including ads, search utility, news, sports, and shopping. Before that, I worked @Siemens as a UX/visual designer, shipped 7 products from B2B industries to boost internal operation efficiency.
My diverse freelance UX journey spans sectors like education, finance, consulting, exhibition, retail, online shopping, health care, entertainment, etc.
Also, as a mentor on the ADP list, achieved top 1% design mentor on the ADP list for four consecutive months in 2023. Mentoring 100+ sessions for a total of 3,000+ hours and assisting 100+ students worldwide.
In my spare time, I wear the hat of a game designer and artist, having created 10+ indie games; notably, launched the indie game Vigorus on Steam, which boasts over 40,000+ downloads.
