I was selected as one of 9 Chicago finalists for standupNBC, a nationwide search for talented stand up comics with a diverse background.
I grew up in Hyderabad, India and then moved to Worcester, Massachusetts when I was 7, very short, very brown, and had a thick accent.
I've lived in Worcester, MA; San Francisco, CA; Silver Spring, MD; New York, NY; London, U.K; Richmond, VA; Williamsburg, VA, Washington, D.C., and Chicago, IL
In high school I brought tears to the eyes of my parents by winning a math award but pursuing a career in writing.
I graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Business Marketing & Entrepreneurship from College of William & Mary, where I led ad campaigns, learned how to work in good and bad teams, and tripped on all the brick sidewalks (it's a thing).
Currently I write copy at Apple in Cupertino, CA.
I perform stand up, and write sketch comedy. I've been featured at the Laugh Factory and on the Zanies Rising stars showcase.
I also started a production company with 2 of my best friends, Team Us Comedy LLC. I produce monthly comedy shows, all recommended by the Red Eye, The Chicago Tribune, and Chicago Reader.
My ideal sunday is tackling my book list and listening to Kanye West (even though he betrayed us).
