Multifaceted human

I am a multidisciplinary designer learning more about the sustainability of systems, and the complex communities within them. I started in the health and wellness sector, designing and strategizing for products and product teams. Now I am working as a service designer in the civic tech space, where I am exploring the delta between systems and ux design.

I am Canadian, Tamil, South African. I like to mix the tools I have from both hemispheres of the world to influence how I design.

I like data, complex problems, and modular iterative builds.
