Mark

About


I was born and raised in Mumbai, India and have always had an obsession with systematic organisation and analog fabrication. Being involved with design and art simultaneously has enabled me to create a perfect balance between how things work and how they are experienced.

My inspiration is mainly fuelled by cross-pollinating between an array of disciplines, helping me approach problem-solving through different lenses. The journey of creation excites me more than the final product, hence every project I undertake explores new horizons.

I am almost always listening to music  and on a hunt to collaborate.

Ultimately, I aspire to be able to create everything because I believe design has the power resolve anything.
