Hi, I'm Nikhil
I’m a designer and animator, based out of the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.
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 of me - thinking about how my animation expertise can help me design better interactions and experiences, and figuring out how to actually build these experiences with code.
I recently 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
