Hi. I build things and make music

CURRENTLY, I'm a product manager at Spotify in New York, where for some reason, I get to define the future of a service that has revolutionized how artists can live off their creations and how people can discover them. 

On any given day, I partner with designers, software developers, and go-to-market teams, leading things like: user research, design, usability testing, defining requirements, analyzing usage, designing user guides & measuring success. 

I BEGAN my journey in India where I studied engineering & design, building a 'super-mileage' car & publishing two papers on aero-dynamics. An intrigue for the data-driven engines of our universe led me to an MS at Columbia University, where I worked on projects with Louis VuittonChamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.

MUSIC is a key part of my life. With a classical piano upbringing & years of smacking drums for my band across South India, I began releasing music as a solo artist in 2020 and have been featured in groovy publications like Rolling Stone India, Wild City, Berlin On Air & Jazz in India, and radio stations like 94.3 Radio One & Musomuso FM. While I usually compose, produce, record & mix my music, I have also collaborated with rising artists including Aleif Hamdan, Bongi Duma & Smokey the Ghost.

MY GOAL is to bring happy and meaningful experiences to the world through the synthesis of music, design and technology.
