I film, I write, I travel. In between meals.

Been making films since 2011— writing and shooting shorts and documentaries on my own. One of my early shorts earned me a seat in a two month long film awareness program at Suchitra film Society, Bangalore and at Gothenburg Film Institute, Sweden. 

In 2014, I started making commercials and Internet content. A year later, I quit my creative director's job in advertising to make films full-time. In 2016, my short film Playgrounds won the Best Short Film award at IFFLA and Gold at IFVA, Hong Kong. It also screened at Palm Springs Shortest, IFF Stuttgart, London and Melbourne and Mumbai International Film Festival.

I work as a freelance director, screenwriter and if you are feeling adventurous, as a cinematographer. For my personal projects, I have juggled the roles of writer, director, cinematographer, producer, production designer and editor. But I still haven’t landed the right role for my acting debut. 

I just completed my first feature screenplay and I am onto my second. I am also collaborating on two mini-series ideas for the Internet.
