Hi, I'm Nikhil

I’m a designer and animator, based out of the beautiful pacific northwest.

Born in India in 1989, I’ve had a passion for animation as long as I can remember. That passion turned into a career animating dragons, mutant turtles and a cat wearing boots!

Along the way, I was drawn by the amazing things that code can do and taught myself how to build websites. I started working as a freelancer, eventually leading me to discover the wonderful world of UX.

I'm always trying to blur the lines these three sides, thinking about how to use animation to design better experiences, and figuring out how to actually build these experiences with code.

Right now, I've just earned my (second) Masters degree, this time in Human Centered Design & Engineering from the University of Washington. I met some incredible people, designed awesome experiences and built a robot!

My absolute favorite design tools

sketch app framer studio
pen and paper invision
html css and js adobe after effects
