Thanks for stopping by. As you've probably guessed by now, I am a documentary filmmaker and editor based in India. I've filmed in remote villages in the poorest districts of India (like Mewat in the north) and in the metropolis of Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore. I can say I have a deep understanding of and, more importantly, sensitivity for the widely diverse cultures and people of India. Having worked for international television channels and organisations, I offer local insights with a global perspective to my stories.
I have produced features and documentary content for international television channels, production companies and corporate houses, including Euronews Television, McGee Media US, Park Hyatt, Child Rescue Charitable Trust and Caritas International.

I have field experience in different areas of filmmaking. I research stories and plan shoots, conduct and shoot field interviews, capture video and audio and edit the package.
Today, I specialise in documentary film and television feature editing. I've worked on 2 long-form documentary film projects and have edited all of my own projects. My documentary film editing project "Paradise Re-invented" won an award for best editing (documentary) at the 2014 Mumbai Shorts International Film Festival.
For projects where quick turnaround and/or budgets are restricted, I've worked solo. What's more, having hands-on experience in all these areas of filmmaking also enables me to work better in a team collaboration. Its also helped me hone my skills as a film and video editor.
I would love to collaborate on projects in documentary film editing and video production for television, newspapers and magazines, charities, NGOs and also corporate entities looking for journalistic content.
I choose to live in the village of Calangute in India's smallest state - Goa. Here in my Portuguese-style ancestral home built in 1903, I have set up my modern video editing suite. I married the love of my life in 2001 and together we live with our three children who are homeschooled.
