Postcards From Juilliard Alums

Upon graduating from Juilliard, I worked with the Acting Company in its productions of Measure for Measure and Native Son, played Romeo in a production of Romeo and Juliet at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, and, most recently, closed a production of Queen at the Long Wharf Theatre and NAATCO, written by the extraordinary Madhuri Shekhar (Playwrights ’18).

I was a part of the series Sink Sank Sunk which stars Laura Linney (Group 19), and I was cast in pilots for ABC and FX. I was also fortunate to work on a wonderful new show coming to Apple TV, and have been in the independent films In Defense of Civil Society, Chicken, To Have and to Hold, The Raging Heart of Maggie Acker, and The Ulysses Project.

Teaching has been a major part of my life since graduating—I teach scene study at the New York Film Academy, and work with MTCA, a company that assists students with their college and graduate school auditions.

My biggest adventure since school, though, has been building and fostering my community. My family lives in Gurgaon, India—so the last few years have been full of FaceTime giggles. I consider myself a very lucky person to have built a tribe here in New York. We play football (the one where you primarily use your feet) on the weekends, go rock climbing, put each other on tape, religiously attempt to create the perfect boiled egg—and strive to live fully and slowly in this brief time we share together.  (:
