I'm Akshay (pronounced Uck-shey). I'm currently studying for my Masters degree in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Maryland, and expect to graduate in May 2018.

I work in the tech industry because I believe in it's power to, as Apple's advertisement puts it, "push the human race forward". Saying that, I'd like to work somewhere where I can create a meaningful positive change for people.

In my free time, I like writing about UX and technology on Medium. I also love to read or play my guitars (Fender Strat, Les Paul replica, and acoustic), and dabble in photography. My best photography work is on my 500px profile.

I'm looking for a job that allows me to provide creative solutions that blend engineering and design to solve interesting problems.
