I have been working in video production for nearly two decades. I write, produce, direct, shoot, and/or edit for corporate clients, nonprofits, independent filmmakers, and my own passion projects. Over the years, I have worked in Los Angeles, New York City, Durham NC, San Francisco, and Philadelphia, cultivating a robust network of filmmakers, freelancers, artists, activists, production houses, and all around amazing people. About five years ago, I started mentoring youth in filmmaking practice and theory, and quickly learned that I loved teaching. I recently completed a three-year MFA at Temple University, where I assisted instruction for college students, and I hope to continue teaching alongside my artistic practice.
I identify as a non-binary, queer, South Asian artist, and am always looking to connect and collaborate with fellow queer/trans/non-binary people of color. I am excited to meet new filmmakers and artist/educators, so please feel free to reach out if you’re interested in collaborating on a project.
