LA based screenwriter. Arun rhymes with the color “maroon”.
My feature films and television pilots tend to be genre-heavy, character-driven, budget-conscious, and focus on underexplored subjects.
My screenplays have received recognition and accolades from various contests and organizations, such as the Black List, the Nicholl fellowship, the CAPE List, Austin Film Festival, and more.
I’m currently seeking representation.
