I am an award winning actress, writer, producer and director, who loves making films and telling stories.
I won the Best Female Filmmaker Merit Award at the International NY Film Festival for my short film Restless and got the Best Actress in Drama award in The Brightside Film Festival for my performance in it. As a first time director, it was very motivating and encouraging to be nominated in the Best Director category at The Brightside Film Festival as well!

I also wrote, produced and acted in a one-act play Obsession which was picked by NY WinterFest and performed at Hudson Guild Theatre in 2018.

Other than acting and filmmaking, I have a bachelor's degree in Geological Engineering and a Master's degree in Infrastructure and Civil Engineering from George Mason University, VA. I love cooking & baking and am a big soccer fan!!!
