There is a kid in every classroom who is interested in everything but academics. I was one.
Drawing, sports and photography kept me positive about life in those days.
In 2010, my teacher caught me daydreaming and doodling on the borders of my textbook and asked me to stand on the desk as a punishment. She also told me something that changed my life—she told me about the National Institute of Design in India.
In 2015, after passing high school (somehow), I got into the National Institute of Design, Andhra Pradesh in India (somehow). That is when I finally started enjoying education (somehow), developed design thinking and a seed of filmmaking was sown by my teachers there.
From 2019 to 2021, I worked on visual design and documentary film projects. The last project before coming to RCA was a documentary TV series for Discovery India covering various unexplained and paranormal phenomena in different parts of India.
In September 2021, I came to RCA for an MA in Visual Communication. Studying and working in London brought a research based approach and a confidence to discover my own methods of creative practice.
