I have an inquisitive mind and love thinking outside the box. I am a critical thinker who was born pragmatic. I am constantly curious being.
My interests include finding simple user-friendly solutions to complex designs. My engaging energetic personality and great communication skills makes it easier for a user to talk to me and helps me collaborate well in a team setting. I enter a room ears first. I am a good listener and I have a high emotional quotient, thus makes me easier to build empathy towards users.
I’m incredibly organized and love living a structured daily routine. I love spending my free time doing something creative like painting, singing, dancing. My quarantine time is spent amazingly with my newly learned guitar skills (since I have extra time). I am also a fitness freak and recently picked up a new hobby of Kickboxing "
