Hello from the other side :)


Hi! I'm Krishna :)

I am an architect who turned into a product generalist climbing through startups in the past 6 years and scaling products from B2B & B2C fronts, web-based to native mobile apps, MVPs to full-blown products. 

The two major products I’ve been grateful to shape are UNI.xyz and Materialdepot.in. My role has evolved a lot all these years sometimes being heavily product-focused, many a time visual and interaction design-focused, and at other times, business-focused. Currently I contribute as a Senior Digital Experience Designer @ Acuity Knowledge Partners.
