About Me

I am a Game Designer, Narrator currently working as a Narrative, Level Designer at PlaySimple Games, Bengaluru. I studied Digital Game design at the National Institute of Design, Bengaluru, and did my bachelor’s degree in Aviation Electronics from the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology. I also worked as a Scientist/ Engineer at Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (ISRO), Thiruvananthapuram for 32 months.
I have always been passionate about video games and novels. To be more specific, Science Fiction and Fantasy enthrall me. I want to conceptualize and create worlds and scenarios, improbable and impossible to others. If it can be speculated it can be realized. I want to envision and work on such speculative ideas and designs.
Science Fiction and Fantasy are genres where creators answer questions none have even dared to ask.
