Tell us about your professional background and experiences. What drives and motivates you in your daily routines?
I completed my Bachelor of Architecture and Planning from the Faculty of Architecture and Planning, Jagannath University, Jaipur 2015. Early in my career, I had the opportunity to work at Habitat Architects in Ludhiana under the guidance of Ar. Zafar Chaudhary and Ar. Ranjot Singh. This experience played a pivotal role in shaping my understanding of commercial architecture as I worked on diverse projects ranging from small residences to large-scale mixed-use buildings and bungalows.

The motivation that fuels my daily routines stems from my hometown of Bikaner. Growing up in a city that lacked opportunities, I desired to create an environment that could compete with larger cities. I wanted to contribute to the growth and development of my home town,
making it as conducive to progress as any metropolitan city in India.This aspiration led me to focus on developing my architectural practice, taking on residential and commercial projects. I constantly strive to enhance my professional skills, drawing inspiration from observing the work of others in the field.
