Friends, Colleagues, and Strangers:

Welcome to my website! Here I have proof that I am a real-life working theatre and on-camera in Chicago. Scroll through my photos up above to see past theatre productions I have been in, or click on my Film/TV tab to see my on-camera work. Check out Solo Show to see my work as a playwright. I am proud to continue working on creating South Asian female characters who are multi-faceted, funny, flawed, and deeply human. We need more variety on our stages.

I try to live by the motto “you don’t have to be perfect, you just gotta show up.” It’s one of my life goals to spread empathy about mental illness, as I am a survivor of depression and anxiety. I find value in life through meditation, Indian classical dance, and terrible, terrible jokes.

I also tutor French around the city. Check out for more information!



I’ll be…
