I am a New Jersey based freelance 2D animation artist. I've worked five years in key positions on in-house and traditionally animated content for prime television networks at an animation company in India.


I relocated to the United States and recently graduated from the School of Visual Arts with a degree in BFA Animation and two award-winning student films. I live in Jersey City with my husband and our three cats.

I'm a character designer and animator who's worked on traditionally animated, family-oriented shows for prime television networks and home videos in India and the US. I've helped create hit cartoon characters, such as India's beloved "Chhota Bheem" and "Krishna". I've also played a prominent role in creating and developing original animated content, and merchandise for international audiences.


I took a break from work in 2007 and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in NYC with a degree in BFA Animation, honors and two multiple award-winning student films in 2012. I live in Irvine, California, with my software engineer husband and our three cats.
