Hi. I am Kunal, A UX Designer
& A Creative Powerhouse.
About Me

I'm originally from Pune, India, but I spent two years living in Barcelona before relocating to the United States. My passion lies in designing and crafting user-centered solutions. Armed with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and a Master's Degree in Interaction Design, I possess a unique blend of technical prowess and design expertise. My professional journey includes freelancing, internships, jobs, and remote work as an Interaction Designer, which has fine-tuned my ability to discern user requirements and create innovative design solutions.

Presently, I am enrolled in a Master's program in Design Management at SCAD, where I am dedicated to further refining my skills and deepening my industry insights. My overarching aspiration is to leverage my knowledge and experiences to drive business growth and effect meaningful change within the industry.

I'm a huge motorcycle enthusiast and have had the thrill of riding through Ladakh's breathtaking landscapes twice. Among my adventures, I've tackled Zojila Pass, known as the world's most dangerous road, and soared across Khardung La Pass, the highest motorable road on the planet. When I'm not pushing the limits on two wheels, you can find me catching waves or adding to my growing collection of patches from every new place I visit. Off the bike, I unwind by playing the guitar, a perfect contrast to the adrenaline from my rides. I'm also a big NBA fan, which keeps me entertained and hooked during my downtime.

I'm inspired by a quote from "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance": "The real cycle you're working on is a cycle called 'yourself.'" This idea shapes my approach to innovation — I believe in constantly improving and bringing new ideas to the table. I'm dedicated to understanding users' needs and pushing beyond the usual to create memorable and effective designs. I aim to bring creativity, strategic thinking, and a fresh perspective to every project, hoping to make a significant impact and inspire others in the process.
