Costume & Performance Designer
Born to a mixed Nepalese and British heritage, I feel fortunate to have been exposed to a spectrum of cultural history from a young age. Folklore and mythology were a significant part of my childhood and the use of narrative to bridge cultural, social and generational divides continues to be an underlying motivation in my work.
Originally educated in graphic design and visual communication, I worked as a creative director and producer in fashion, advertising and publishing before training at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School as a costume and set designer. As a designer I’ve worked on projects spanning theatre, film, dance and interactive entertainment and am especially interested in multidisciplinary projects. I’m currently working as a design assistant and costume illustrator for film and TV.
I’ve significant experience working in outreach and engagement with a verity of charities and educational institutions, and am always keen to work on projects that support community. I firmly believe in investing in young people and am always keen to facilitate work to empower and inspire our future society.
