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 designer who has worked on traditionally animated, family-oriented shows for prime television networks, and home videos in India, and the US. I have helped create highly successful cartoon characters, such as India's beloved "Chhota Bheem", and "Krishna". I have 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.
