Hailing from Edison, New Jersey, Arjun is a designer by way of engineering who is currently an MFA Candidate at the Products of Design program at the School of Visual Arts. He graduated with a B.S. in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College in 2009, followed by an M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University in 2012. Over the course of his education, he realized he felt most fulfilled by classes where he got to design and build objects (one of those objects became a patented, FDA-approved medical device). Realizing where his true passions lay, Arjun used his engineering background as a platform to launch into the world of product design. Before arriving at SVA, he worked on the design, development, project management and launch of several products for luxury cosmetics company, La Prairie Switzerland. Involved with all facets of the packaging experience from bottle design and molding to carton manufacturing and product assembly, Arjun learned firsthand how to take products from the whiteboard to store shelves. In his free time, Arjun enjoys photography, travel, running, swimming and film.
