BIO


I was born and raised in Mumbai and after being forced to watch a goat brain being dissected at age 10, I disappointed my Indian parents by announcing that I would never become a doctor. After voluntary admission into a boarding school, I pursued my undergraduate studies at Emerson College. In 2014 I worked as Assistant to Max Mutchnick (co-creator of Will & Grace) and in the Fall of 2015, I was admitted into the AFI Conservatory. Since Graduating from AFI, I have produced commercials, corporate videos, short films, and am currently serving as producer at Five Towers. In January 2019, I was selected to be Part of Film Independent’s 2019 Class of Project Involve.

I don’t think there was a moment in time where I knew I wanted to make them. In fact, I had no idea you could make a career being in the business unless you were an actor. It came down to my cumulative life experience and steadily drifting away from business to the humanities. I will say the film Children of Heaven was what truly made me fall in love with movies and I strive to make a sincere film like that someday.
