I have been engaged in my creative side from my very childhood, starting with playing the Drums, Tabla and Piano from a very young age. during my college years, this evolved into a passion for music that resulted in me being a part of a Thrash-metal/Rock band "Jettarura" which headlined at many events in Northern India. Other than having a strong extra-curricular experience through working with organizations such as AIESEC, Rotary Club etc, I was also involved in freelance photography, blogging, event management, public speaking and music composition through various large scale public events and functions. My real involvement with films came after my graduation when I was actively involved in two firms as: Branding and Advertisement head at Dwarka Gems Ltd. and Social Media Head at B.J.P. Rajasthan.
Dwarka Gems Ltd, an international Jewellery manufacturing and retail firm based in Jaipur and London gave me an international exposure in the work of Branding and Advertisement. During this period, driven by my passion for history, political sciences and sociology, I worked at the Bhartiya Janta Party (B.J.P.), a prominent political party in India, doing Social Media Management, as we worked on the winning campaign of 2013 assemble election of the State of Rajasthan.
Having worked in a spectrum of verticals, both professionally and as a volunteer or freelance, I was driven into the world of filmmaking, a dream that I had cherished since childhood. With Advertisement and Socio-Political experience at my disposal, I began to explore Documentary filmmaking as well as working on commercial ad-films. This gave rise to an active involvement in production of Music Videos and PSAs which finally led to me finishing my graduation as a Master of Arts in Film and Media Production from New York Film Academy, Los Angeles.
Currently, I work as a freelance filmmaker in Los Angeles, Producing and Directing Films and Media Content.
