I am a user experience designer, visual designer,
product designer, coder and a design leader.

Hi there! My name is Anand. I have been creating user-centered experiences for over a decade. I hold an Engineering degree in Computer Science. My passion for design led me to pursue a Master's degree in User Experience Design (UXD) from Kent State University.

Why am I in the field of design?

Since a young age, I have been passionate about design and animation. In 8th grade, I tried creating cartoons using frame-by-frame animation in Macromedia Flash. I used Photoshop to create the necessary images for the animations, and as time went by, I became increasingly interested in the various fields of design. Eventually, I realized that user satisfaction should be the top priority, which led me to shift my focus towards user experience design.

I have a passion for collecting keychains outside of my design work. I enjoy exploring various designs and styles of keychains and adding them to my collection. Additionally, I have a Facebook page where I share photos of my keychains with other enthusiasts.
