I like working as a Design Evangelist through my works as a teacher, mentor, and as a promoter of the value of design amongst colleges and organisations across India. My approach is firmly grounded in applying the principles of Design Thinking to Problem Solving, Team Management, Design Consulting, Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

Currently I am the Director and Head of Operations of India Studio of L’école de design Nantes Atlantique. The program is run in academic collaboration with The Design Village, in Noida. It was earlier run in partnership with Srishti School of Art Design & Technology in Bangalore.

Some of my other engagements. 
I am an advisor to a few organisations on design and social innovations. I am a faculty of design at The Institute for Product Leadership, teaching User Experience, Prototyping and Usability to Product management professionals.

I am also the Managing Trustee at the Happy Horizons Trust, that use the power of design thinking, story telling and activity based learnings towards improving the quality of education in schools.

I regularly speak at conferences and events on Design and Social Innovations and am often mentoring  on the same.
