BEHIND THE WORK: ABOUT ME

Hey! I'm Purnima, but my friends and family call me Fiza. 

A multidisciplinary designer who finds joy in sharing and learning new things. My expertise lies in Digital Media Design and Mixed-Methods Research. Design wise, I’m passionate about connecting with people, thinking outside the box, and attention to producing quality work.

You know the one friend that always tells lots of jokes? Yep, that’s me. I thrive among ambitious, passionate, and curious teammates, where together, we can create meaningful and lasting impact on people and society. I seek proactive teams that value ethics, culture, storytelling, and aren’t afraid of having fun!

In my free time, you can find me outdoors - camping in Algonquin, biking Toronto’s lakeshore, gardening vegetables in my backyard, practicing new tricks with my dog, or complaining about the lack of a decent travel itinerary app in 2023. Indoors, I enjoy podcasting with my sister, doing nail art, investing in timeless fashion pieces, and mentoring youth in my community.
