I am educator, filmmaker and editor.I love to run and I am passionate about being fit. I like to read and engage in meaningful conversations. I love traveling around the globe and experiencing different cuisines and culture. I like to share stories through the world of cinema and video.I strive for simplicity .
We’ll start with 2001 when I moved to United states . I graduated with my MFA from Georgia State University . Prior to that I had hundreds of great experiences working in Television, Commercials and Feature Films in India. While traveling the world and working on Film sets became a passion , I soon realized that in the real world having a family with the love of your life and being on film sets does not necessarily work well .I had change few things and still can be passionate about films.
After graduation, I worked for various jobs as editor and assisting around short film productions in Atlanta . Along came 2 kids and it became harder to get back on the set. I did freelance work. I edited documentaries and started working as an Adjunct faculty member in a local college.
While I was doing what I enjoyed – making videos and Teaching – I didn’t feel like I was actually thriving. I realized the shortcomings of the education system and the huge loans students have to undertake to get an Arts Degree and I was no longer happy with my job. I also realized that most of the students just land up in Arts degree without really realizing if they want to pursue it or not .
Something had to change.
If I was going to be successful and change something in the education world where students still can follow their passion but not undertake loans for thousands of dollars, I would have to do it things differently.
I created my first online course and started on my online journey .
I created MYFILMCAMP on YouTube as a place to share and connect with the world.
