I'm Kartik, a UX designer, developer, photographer and futurist. You can find me at the crossroads of creativity, technology, and the human condition. I believe technology, paired with ambition and creativity, can truly change the world.
I am extremely passionate about ideas that can make a difference. When I am not writing code, you can find me listening to TED talks on how to improve education, thinking and writing about social issues and human rights, or watching one of Jason Silva's videos on imagination. If you are also curious about such ideas, check out my newsletter, Wings of Ambition.
I also love designing solutions to bring more people and businesses online. The internet has the potential to create a truly interconnected species, and we are only getting started! As the Next Billion technology users go online over the next few years, the internet will become the town square of an incredible global village. If you would like an awesome website or app to connect with people around the world, send me a message below to get started.
If you just want to chat or want me to speak at an event, feel free to contact me!
