I am the Managing Director and Co-Founder of Studio 33 (thisisstudio33.com), a production house in Bangalore offering communication solutions in film & animation. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in communication studies and political science from Gustavus Adolphus College, MN, and a Master’s degree in Film Production from Boston University.
I am also the Artistic Director and Co-Founder of the Renegade Arts and Theatre Society (renegadearts.andtheare.com), a not for profit community theater production house working on socially relevant theatrical productions.
Over the past fifteen years I have produced over twenty theatrical presentations, several short films and documentaries and host two audio-podcasts – one on issues of justice and peace and the other on film criticism.
I continue to look for meaningful ways to produce media and art that can influence a conversion of public opinion into public action on critical issues of our time. In 2009 I was awarded the Harold Buchbinder Award for Media Entrepreneurship and completed a year long mentoring program with Jay Roewe, Senior Vice President of Film Production at HBO. I was also recently inducted to the Global Shapers Community, and initiative by the World Economic Forum.
