Stories from inside the heart of India

A video journalist and documentary film maker based in India, I am passionate about telling stories with emotion, equally at home in the remote villages of rural India as in the bustling metropolis. By nature quiet and unassuming, this puts people at ease before a camera in any environment, resulting in stories that touch the heart.

A Passion for storytelling

I’ve been based in India from birth, having lived in the big metro of Mumbai (formerly Bombay) and one of the smallest state – Goa. As such, I have a deep understanding of the widely diverse cultures and people of India. Having worked for international television channels and organisations, I offer an international perspective in my stories while being true to the emotions of the characters in my stories.

Working solo, I am able to produce a features for projects requiring a small footprint – where subjects need to be put at ease or simply for budget reasons. I do the research, field interviews, shooting and audio capture as well as the video editing – an advantage when quick turnaround is vital. I’m equally at ease working with other talented professionals in a collaboration.

This site will give you an idea of my style and areas of work. From features for television to documentaries and commercial spots for TV, I cannot turn down a good story. Do get in touch to talk about your specific project or collaboration. I don’t bite! Promise :)
