A little bit
about me 
I'm a 90's kid who spent his early years between India and London.

After making it through graduate studies in International Law, Conflict and Politics, I began freelancing as a visual journalist, creative director and filmmaker.

For outlets ranging from international newspapers to pioneering brands, I covered issues from conflict to the environment, always striving to put human stories and faces first.

The work has been a wild journey through commissioned and personal projects across Europe, North Africa, Central America, Afghanistan, Iraq, South Asia and China for clients including National Geographic, Google, The Guardian, BBC, Discovery and Channel 4. 

Now I work for a variety of clients leveraging storytelling as a powerful tool for self-expression, informing public debate and documenting history.

Here's a little sample of what I've been up to...
