I am an actor and writer and have been in iterations past, a dancer and choreographer. My career has been a surprising sequence of events.
I was born in India and spent my childhood and early adulthood in Bangalore, surrounded by an unconventional family of professional creatives who nurtured my fascination with the arts. I studied Bharata Natyam (Indian classical dance) and theatre from them after which I moved to London, (UK) to study at The Laban Centre. Living in London anchored me, and allowed for a deeper exploration in the fields of theatre, film and television. Through working with a wide range of talented professionals, I expanded my knowledge base in the performing arts. Fifteen years later, following a need for new adventure, I moved to Vancouver, Canada where I now work in TV and film. As actor who writes (or a writer who acts), my focus is in scripting for performance. I am currently enrolled in the MFA program in Creative Writing at the University of British Columbia.
I am Indian, British and Canadian.
