About Me

A work-in-progress writer, amateur filmmaker and a digital media artist.

As an online journalist with over five years of reporting and editing experience in India, I moved to Canada with the hope to diversify my knowledge of storytelling techniques. I am passionate about documentary filmmaking and writing. I’m currently working on an interactive documentary film on how women in India interpret spaces and create their version of feminism.

In the past, I have written about contemporary issues, politics, travel and culture through long form, radio, documentary and social media. I’m also passionate about audience engagement techniques, scripting, doing voice-overs and developing interactive web layouts.

The interactive documentary film, which is a project for York University, Toronto will be released around late summer 2020. Here’s a snip of one of my favourite shots of the film.
