I have produced and directed a number of short documentaries on the role of technology in empowering people to lead healthier lives.

I also produced and directed a 25-minute narrative short, The Apartment which was filmed in my birthplace, Bangalore, India and stars India’s legendary stage and screen star, Rajit Kapur. The Apartment has won a handful of awards and is beginning to garner the attention is deserves. But, I am partial.

When Eddie Met June

So this little dab of noir was created during a directing class I took at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. We were given just a few days to write a script with the following constraints: no more than 2 pages, 2-3 characters max, and it had to take place in a bar. I was watching and reading a lot of David Mamet and so I was obsessed with manipulation and backstabbing and hatched this little triple betrayal vignette.


Health 2.0

I crafted the first films for Health 2.0 to create the health media channel that has since grown into Health 2.0 TV


Sunday People

I was a producer on this incredible documentary about what inspires humanitarian workers to do what they do.  Directed by Saleena Subaiya, it follows three individuals and their work in the most forgotten places in India.
