Billi

Mumbai
Resident Thread Ninja | Gmail Hacker

Though she’s one of the few non designers in the studio, Billi is no stranger to style. She elegantly nestles herself on people’s laptops while they’re working and chews up their wires in a dramatic display of disapproval! The perennial acrobat, she can balance on tip toe through most of the day, only to fall off horizontal surfaces when startled. She makes homes out of people’s bags and ensconces herself in their flowing pants. However, should ye be warned, even the most resolute of cat haters have fallen prey to her charm.
