Simple, Meaningful Stories for Everyone

I’m a filmmaker and wildlife content creator exploring diverse forms of storytelling- filmmaking,  podcasting and immersive experiences.  My aim is to create engaging content to communicate and connect with people from diverse backgrounds in a simple, meaningful way. 

I love telling stories about people and nature. My graduation film Sniper about a conservation dog protecting Yellow-eyed Penguins won an award and has been screened in film festivals globally. My podcasts have been featured on one of the most popular shows,  Radio New Zealand's Our Changing World.  I received the Jackson Wild Fellowship in 2021. 

I’m currently producing & hosting a nature podcast Tune into Nature that aims to share natural sounds and stories and inspire people to connect with nature in their own way.  

My work ranges from producing short films & podcasts, working with NHNZ Worldwide on TV shows for global networks like National Geographic Wild, Love Nature, Curiosity Stream to conducting hands-on Science Filmmaking workshops for school students. 

I’m  from Tamil Nadu, Southern India and am currently based in Dunedin, Aotearoa New Zealand.
