A bit about me
I’m often asked, what is it I do? There’s no single term that describes it.

- Story Research
- Photography / Cinematography
- Field Interviewing
- Video Editing
- Social Media Management
- WordPress Setup & Management
- Layout and Print Design
Words: My First Love
My professional journey began in 2000 when I joined a leading daily newspaper in Goa, India – the Navhind Times, where I oversaw the web edition. I regularly wrote feature content for the weekend magazines. I was also responsible for a complete re-design of the newspaper during my stint there. I simultaneously developed an interest in photojournalism. My work was published in the Navhind Times.
In 2006 I was awarded the Dempo Research Fellowship that enabled me to conduct a year-long photographic study of the fishing community and activities along Goa’s coastline.
I was drawn to the power of the moving image
Soon thereafter, I was drawn to the power of the moving image. Since 2012 I’ve freelanced for Euronews TV in India 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.
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. Having worked for international television channels and organisations, I offer local insights with a global perspective to my stories.
I research stories, shoot, interview, and edit the package.
I also have documentary film editing projects in my portfolio where I’ve worked with filmmakers to bring their vision to life. My first documentary film editing project “Paradise Re-invented” won an award for best editing (documentary) at the 2014 Mumbai Shorts International Film Festival. My most recent film editing project – Granary of Salcette won the Best Short Documentary film award at the Asia Independent Film Festival, 2018 in Bangalore, India.
