actor | film enthusiast | coffee aficionado | lawyer | performer at heart

I'm a New York based actor with extensive film and theater experience. I recently performed in the prestigious NBC Diversity Showcase 2013 in New York City for an industry audience. I also had a co-star role on Law & Order: SVU, episode ”Acceptable Loss,” and as a detective seeking answers to a mysterious disappearance of a death row inmate in the independent short film The Fourth Day. I'm currently preparing for a role as a ruthless gangster in the upcoming film Turncoat, directed by Mav Block. This fall, I will be performing in the ABC Casting Workshop for South Asian actors in NYC, having been selected as a finalist.

In 2004, I won the regional Southeast competition of a popular Bollywood dance show called Boogie Woogie, which led him to compete nationally in New York. The show was broadcast worldwide on SONY TV Asia and featured in numerous media outlets and press.

I've trained with the famed Anthony Abeson Studio in NYC; the Tony award-winning Alliance Theater; YourAct Studio in Atlanta – an affiliate of the prestigious Margie Haber Studio; and studied independently the Chubbuck Technique.

As a lawyer, I serve as general counsel to startups and companies across industries. I was born in Kuwait and attended an international school until we moved stateside. I grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta before moving to New York. I've been described as adventerous and an optimist, two qualities I hope to carry with me through this insane thing called life.
