After working as Associate to many renowned Editors, he debuted as Film Editor with HULLA. It was followed by the critically acclaimed and National Award Winner “Leaving Home – the life and music of Indian Ocean”.

His FTII education enabled him to don various hats in film-making. One such film is “Soch Lo” in which he was Film Production in-charge.

Apart from working on feature films, he edited / directed various short films, documentaries, Corporate AVs etc. He is privileged to direct “KARM KE VEER“- a documentary on Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, Mussorie commemorating its golden jubilee in 2009.
