A veteran in architecture, Nelson has worked with institutions such as Amar Consult, Parsons–Harland Bartholomew Associates, and Dubai Municipality. He has also worked as a senior planner on a range of urban design planning projects. One of these projects was the Structure Plan of Dubai.

In 2004, Nelson and a few of his contemporaries founded 2KPM in association with studios from Mangalore and Mysore.
