FIELD STORIES

For the past three years, I have travelled and filmed in rainforests, grasslands, high mountains in the Himalayas as well as coral reef atolls. Here's a little sneek-peek into my journey!

 
 

ABOUT ME

I took to camera much later in life. Starting as a naturalist taking wildlife camps for children, then moving on to do a Masters degree in Wildlife biology and Conservation; I have a deep knowledge about species behaviour and ecosystem functioning. I spent three years in the Lakshadweep Islands in the Indian Ocean studying how global warming affects coral reef recovery, before I moved to filming wildlife on a full time basis. My first project was as a Primary camerawoman for a 10 part series on Indian wildlife for Off the Fence. You can see the rest of my work in the section below. 

I have technical expertise in long lens sequence building (Varicam 35 + Canon CN20), drone operation (DJI Inspire 2) and underwater filming (own camera housing). 


I also run a seafood initiative called ‘Know Your Fish’ which is an ocean friendly initiative that helps seafood consumers choose their fish based on breeding cycles of fish. It introduced the first ever seafood calendar for the country and has been very well received.


Back at home, I rescue snakes and other wildlife that may need intervention. I enjoy CrossFit and train everyday whether or not on field. I love cats and coffee (preferably pour over).
