About Me


Filming Ukrain from MAy 22nd to May 31st.
Starting from Kiev and driving down to Odessa and Black Sea.

Indie Films, collaborations and travels of course


There is no happiness for him who does not travel!
Thus we have heard.
Living in the society of men, even the best man becomes a sinner.
Therefore, wander!
The fortune of him who is sitting, sits.
It rises when he rises.
It sleeps when he sleeps.
It moves when he moves.
Therefore, wander!

Aitreya Brahmanan, the Rigveda (800-600 BC)

I am a restless soul. i love to talk and i also love to listen. i travel almost 6months in a year either filming or to escape from the cities.. most of my trips are unplanned. i might skip visiting the 7 so called wonders of the world. i will rather go around the places less visited. i adapt myself pretty fast wherever i go. don like to roam around like a tourist, rather explore live that place like a local. don know what else.. Anyways its not an interview but an introduction.. he he



the biggest risk in this life is if u don't take it...!!!
