About

I grew up in India and now live in northern California. I have always been a visual person. As a child I would spend hours with a sketchbook and a box of paints. It followed naturally that I pursued a career in the visual arts. I currently work at Pixar Animation Studios as a lighting artist. Though my day job entails the use of a computer more than a paintbrush, of all technical fields related to computer graphics, Lighting feels the most akin to painting in the real world. That said, the thrill of a paintbrush in my hands is something I cannot live without.

Family and friends, California, India, great stories, great films, food, mythology – my life is full of Muses. I love to paint and be around people who like to make things.
