In 2020, I interned at Mahindra Automotive North America in Auburn Hills, Michigan as an Automotive Exterior/Interior Accessory Designer. This gave me “production-ready” experience, while enabling me to learn from experienced professionals.

My journey as an automotive designer is continuing and I aim to join an automotive (OEM or supplier) or product company that allows me to pursue my dream of creating and learning.
