About Sandeep

A few months after graduating from Wake Forest University I moved to New York City and landed my first gig as a PA on Fox’s New York Undercover and then HBO's The Sopranos. I then transitioned into feature films landing gigs on A Perfect Murder starring Michael Douglas & Gwyneth Paltrow followed by Substance of Fire with Sarah Jessica Parker & Timothy Hutton.

I land up in Hollywood working in production on the films Phoenix with Ray Liotta and Deep Impact with Morgan Freeman & Elijah Wood. I then spent a year in India working on the controversial films Kama Sutra directed by Mira Nair and Fire directed by Deepa Mehta.

After a year in India, I moved into the ad world as an Associate Producer for DDB Chicago working primarily on campaigns for Budweiser beer which included 3 Super Bowl commercials.

After advertising, I joined the film department at Columbia College Chicago where I was nominated for excellence in teaching 3 times during my tenure. I also formed my production company A Light in the Universe Filmworks (aka ALITUF) which has produced short films which have screened internationally.

Currently, I am living in Brooklyn freelancing as a commercial director and editor and continuing to produce content through ALITUF.

Unique traits: Ridiculously good at ping pong.
