I love storytelling. My most popular short film has over 65,000 views on YouTube, which involved two whole years and the effort of 50+ volunteer cast and crew. My other productions include a documentary on a World War 2 jet and a comedy sketch on how our college hotspot resembles Facebook-ing, as well as a cute romantic film, that is yet to be compiled and released!

I also write articles, stories, newspapers, blogs, songs & novels. Some of them are:

  1. Published Articles: I have published in The Print and ISI News.
  2. Sci-fi novel: DNA Revolution, a story of Venezuela embroilled in a politico-military crisis on the eve of a major breakthrough in genetics.
  3. Short stories book: Martyrs’ Horizon, inspired by a Chicken Soup book I read.
  4. Newspaper: Articles for the college newsletter Quest at IIT BHU, and the school newsletter at City Montessori School
  5. Blogs: I have some old ones on Medium and many newer ones on Notion.

I’ve also participated in festival management, street plays, skits, dance clubs, robo-soccer, rap songs, stand-up comedy, handicrafts, and sketching.

I consider myself a lifelong learner and a big fan of spaced repetition. I’ve enrolled in a wide range of classes like Interactive Journalism, Chinese History, Macroeconomics, Social Entrepreneurship, Self-Defense, Improv, Hip-Hop Dance, Cognitive Neuroscience, Film Appreciation, and African History.

I’m an avid reader of books, both non-fiction and fiction. Currently loving Murakami. Trying to update my list on Goodreads.

I have been fortunate enough to live in four countries and travel across the world. Some of the cities I’ve been to are (most recent first):
