A User Experience consultant in New York with 10 years of experience. I have been lucky to have lived & worked across various geographies (India, Italy, UK, Finland, Denmark & US) with brands such as Nokia, Novero, Velux, Samsung, Kodak & Nike.
In the last few years I have been a lead member of the R/GA team working on building products and services for Nike+. My role has been to lead interaction design team and drive the interaction design behind the Nike+ platform.
I enjoy being part of teams/companies where I can immerse myself and play a strategic role in developing them from ground-up and add business value through design. As a User Experience Designer I am increasingly interested (and focused) on creating product & service ecosystems that enhances the offering of a company and add both consumer & business value.
