I'm a multimedia journalist specialized in making videos, audio, and motion-graphics.

Currently, I am an associate producer on The New York Times Opinion audio team, the creative director for a pop-up literary anthology, and the producer and host of an independent podcast, You've Got it Made.

Most recently, I produced, edited, filmed and animated videos at The Atlantic, where I worked on two series that included collaborations with writers across the newsroom, and I was briefly a video editor for Newsy's new TV show, In The Loop. Prior to that, I covered breaking news stories and made video explainers at Mother Jones. I helped re-launch their instagram account by taking over curation and creating graphics for their page. I was also a video fellow at Grist where I covered environmental justice stories, and an intern at Vox.com during the 2016 Presidential elections, including work on short documentaries and social strategy. 

I studied documentary filmmaking and feature writing at Medill, Northwestern University, and I have a degree in history and geopolitics from Delhi University and the National University of Singapore.

 

I'm a member of the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA), the South Asian Journalists Association (SAJA), The Video Consortium, Girls in Film, and Brown Girls Doc Mafia.

Since moving to the U.S. in 2015, I have lived and worked in Chicago, Seattle, New York and DC. I've mapped out my entire journey, been interviewed about how the city I live in influences my work, and written about how I try to stay happy despite the constant uncertainty of not having a permanent home.

A consequence of this search for a home has led to an inordinate amount of time thinking, talking and tweeting about India and South Asia - as documented in this interview with WBEZ's worldview on curfews on adult Indian women, this essay on my late grandmother, and this story on a phenomenal Pakistani woman.
