"Do or do not, there is no try"
I'm an Indian actor based in New York City having recently completed my training at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
I was born in Bangkok and was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to live in Dubai, India, the Netherlands, and now the U.S. Amid all the change was a single constant–a love for stories. And it was this obsession with imagination that would pull me out of a storybook, and onto a stage.
Acting in middle school helped me come out of my shell. After my last play in India, where I played Mrs. Trunchbull in Matilda, I moved to the Netherlands to complete my Bachelor’s in Business. It was an unforgettable and forging experience, but it made me realize that while I was good at school, I wasn't passionate about business in the same way I was about acting.
And so with my parents' blessing, I moved to New York to make acting my only priority. I recently completed my time as part of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts' Company 2021-22, and have been around a few states now for acting work, hope to someday hit all 50 states!
