About Me

I'm Parinistha, a UX/Product Designer with MS in Human Computer Interaction from DePaul University.

I'm an Engineer turned Designer, fueled by a passion to craft digital solutions that not only resonate with users but also drive business success through empathy driven design.

Previously, earned my Bachelors in Engineering from Mumbai University.

I have always been intrigued by how technology can connect people. I decided to pursue a career in human-computer interaction, where I could combine my curiosity, creativity, and technical skills to craft meaningful and innovative user experiences. 

I am highly motivated to explore new challenges and expand my knowledge and abilities.

Fun fact

I LOVE dogs.
