Aarshin Karande Portrait (Wide)

Hi, I’m Aarshin.

Professionally and personally, I prescribe to Albert Einstein’s conviction that, “No problem can be solved at the same level of consciousness that created it.” As a Media Experience Strategist, I am committed to creating and studying media experiences that help evolve consciously and solve global challenges.

 

My expertise includes media, design, policy, and management, which I’ve studied at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the University of Washington Bothell (UWB). As a professional, I want to create products, services, and policies that foster human potential via innovative media experiences.
