I am an animator, illustrator, and photographer based in New Delhi. My early education here was filling school notebooks with  doodles. Later, I got into animation and worked on films, TVlive-action moviescommercials, and games. I also illustrated books and designed mascots. The journey took me to Bangalore, Toronto, Pune and Mumbai, where I became an educator and discovered photography. Back in New Delhi now, I have added photography projects to my portfolio. I can also be found plotting new art projects and films, finishing my graphic novel, and playing music.
