What it's like to work with me

Tulio Jarocki
Senior Product Designer at The New York Times

I had the pleasure of working with Sonal during her internship at The New York Times, and I can confidently say that she is an exceptional designer with a lot of potential. She has a natural talent for understanding user and business problems, and designing grounded and executable solutions. From day one of her internship at The New York Times, she consistently produced impactful design solutions grounded in evidence-based research. She was always open to feedback and collaborated effectively with other designers and cross-functional partners. During her time at the Times, Sonal's skills improved substantially in a short amount of time, which speaks to her diligence and commitment to growth. However, the quality that stood out to me most was her go-getter attitude – she is somebody who gets things done. Sonal will be a fantastic addition to any design team and will continue to make meaningful contributions to the industry.

Let's connect.

For work or a ramble on anything design, technology and people.
