Kolkata, West Bengal, India

I am a seasoned professional adept in screenwriting, content creation, directing, photography, cinematography, editing, and production, currently based in London, UK. Holding a B.A. in English Literature (Honours) from the University of Calcutta, India, and pursued an M.A. in Filmmaking at the University of Sussex, United Kingdom. My creative endeavours include published photography works featured three times by Vogue Italia. As a multi-faceted Director/Writer/Cinematographer, I brought to life 'ITI (Yours Truly)' in 2019 and led as the Director/Writer/Producer for 'Land of Lost Triggers' in 2021. Both films garnered international acclaim, securing awards at prestigious film festivals such as the Tagore International Film Festival, Prague International Monthly Film Festival, Pune International Short Film Festival, Golden Short Film Festival, and The Lift-Off Sessions (2x). These films have been widely screened on OTT platforms such as YouTube's Hook Films Channel, MovieSaints, and published by MUBI. My recent portfolio spans diverse projects encompassing short films, documentaries, music videos, photography assignments, and written publications. I am particularly drawn to stories exploring societal and psychological nuances, and my storytelling often delves into these compelling aspects of the complex human narratives.
