My Story

Hi, Thanks for stopping by! My name is Kalyan Gali and people around me call 'KG'. I like to make things cool and innovative, regardless of what medium I'm working in. I'm well acquainted with design development life cycle, eLearning, publishing design methodologies, expertise in brand identity, graphic, web design and usability with over a decade of working experience. I have a strong working exposure in online gaming, brand marketing, creative direction and in learning industries. I also managed, maintained and mentored teams to work with high spirits, work efficient, be smart and do right!. Fortunately am a reason for many cutting edge solutions to my existing and past companies whom I proudly worked with. I also help start-up founders build great products that promote a positive user experience. Blah….blah…blah…...
When I'm not doing those things, Aside from design being my core strength, my other biggest one is my 'family'. I had a beautiful and smart wife, who manages all my house hold work and most importantly allows me do whatever I want to do. Her contribution holds a bigger part in my successful carrier path. The amount of random movie knowledge I have would scare you. It shows am a movie freak! I have been told that I have a sweet tooth for chocolate similar to a girl's. But I can’t change it, nor want to change. Am found of sweets. I cook (not better than my mom and wife), play good number of console games. That’s all I have to say for now!

I wish to expand my expertise in a work space where it can show direct or indirect impact on positive business numbers.
