The word "godgeez" doesn't mean anything. It’s a gaming alias I created in 2003 and never changed.
I'm a designer, blogger & a hobby artist. I work at Urban Company as SVP of Design, Content & Research. I was heading design and product analytics at Cuddle.ai (now, Crux Intelligence) and worked at Fab.com, FusionCharts. I also founded a couple start-ups in the past — Kria Interactive (2011) & Intelligent Interfaces (2016). This website is a repository of my thoughts on product design, team building, frameworks & life.
After finishing engineering, I didn't find typical IT jobs appealing. Instead, I pursued building beautiful and interactive websites. I started as a PHP developer and eventually became the creative head at zozolo.com. After six months, I left and co-founded Kria Interactive, a design agency that worked with big brands like Gulf Oil and Subway.
However, I soon realised that I wanted to be iterative instead of just creating one-off websites. My exposure to the role of UX Designer on LinkedIn led me to Fab.com, a digital product company that taught me a lot about collaboration and culture. From there, I accidentally discovered my love for data visualization during a meeting with the founder of FusionCharts. I worked there for a year before moving on to other companies like Housing, Cuddle.ai/Crux Intelligence, and Urban Company.
I've loved drawing since childhood and still enjoy it by painting abstracts on canvas boards and bottles. Few years ago, a friend's farmhouse reignited my love for nature, and now I have a lovely home garden. I play drums, draw doodles & lettering, play games and share infrequently on Instagram. Someday, I want to be a race car driver.
