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 am a character animator, and character designer who is currently working in the Storyboarding Department at Disney TV Animation on "The Lion Guard" cartoon series. I have worked on TV shows and home video productions in India, and the US. I also helped create some of India's most beloved cartoon characters, "Chhota Bheem" and "Krishna".


I took a break from work, and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2012 with honors, and two multiple award-winning films. I also briefly taught Character Design at SVA before relocating to Southern California, where I now live with my software engineer husband, and our three cats.
