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

I started making films in 2010 — writing and shooting short films and documentaries on my DSLR. My first short film Zinfandel earned me a scholarship in a non-fiction film awareness course 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 Ogilvy India to make films full-time.

My short film Playgrounds from 2015 won the Best Short Film award at IFFLA '16 and Gold at IFVA, Hong Kong. It was invited to the Palm Springs Shortest, IFF Stuttgart, London, Melbourne, Toronto and Mumbai International Film Festival.

I work as a freelance director and screenwriter. For my personal projects, I have juggled the roles of writer, director, cinematographer, producer, production designer and editor. 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.
