“As a designer of manmade spaces, I listen to each client and then include my experience and education in designing the individual space. I design spaces that not only function well but impact the user’s emotional and spiritual well-being. I take into consideration the user’s aspirations, preferences and culture. In the process of designing, the budget is a very important factor and I discuss and interact with the client, about the budget, through the whole process so that the project gets implemented without compromising the initial intent and goals. My unique strengths are to make the space alive by use of colors, textures and light. I am very conscious of long term impact on environment and the human being, so I keep myself abreast with the various technologies and new materials, I have very keen understanding of running a business especially restaurants so I do offer services of getting the permit from the Health department, kitchen design, equipment ordering, lighting design and creating brand and promoting it.”
