“Udit is a versatile and thoughtful designer who is a great collaborator and executes carefully. He has a broad knowledge base of subjects from design through technology, and a personal design curiosity that leads him to provide interesting insights and solutions, and can have his hand in many aspects of what a project may require. He comes to meetings prepared, and meets his deadlines with documentation that exceeds expectations. He is a joy to work with.”




Angela Greene

Principal / SVP Creative - Director of Visual Design

ESI Design

“I worked with Udit over a two year period at AV&C on complex experiential installations, each with a unique set of user experience, design, and software considerations.

Udit is incredibly adept at deep and logical thinking around user experience. His engineering background informs his approach to systematic design in multifaceted software ecosystems. Udit’s UX and design supports the team from early in concept through the implementation in code and space.

I highly recommend Udit’s work, and look forward to working with him again in the future.”

Personal Interests


Topics I am most passionate about include experience design, emerging technologies, digital mindfulness, speculative design, bioart, travel, culture and ontology.

After living in India, New York, and Houston, I’m now based in Atlanta. To feed my digital curiosity, I enjoy taking design courses, learning new platforms, making code-generated art and electronic music. To balance my time spent digitally and return to it inspired, I meditate, read, cook, stroll through parks, hike mountains, visit museums and galleries, explore restaurants and event spaces.
