I am a first generation Indian immigrant to the United States. My primary interests were literature and philosophy. A friend introduced Terrance Malick films to me when I moved to the United States. Through Malick's movies I discovered that film language is direct and universal, in a way it is similar to music. It doesn’t need to be translated to make an impression on anyone. So I chose visual storytelling. I currently live in Portland, Oregon. IN THE BEGINNING is my first film.
