Hey there! I'm Nithi (pronounced Nih • thee, and my pronouns are she/her). I'm an iOS engineer & product designer, currently building at Daffy. Welcome to my little corner on the Internet. Having a background in mobile, I bring additional context for interface design to my design practice.
In my free time, I enjoy—
🧘🏽 Doing yoga & pilates
🎵 Listening to EDM
🏙 Exploring the city
🐦 Talking about design on Twitter!
