Some of my professional highlilghts include touring with AR Rahman as a featured singer on his “Jai Ho World Tour”, performing on Broadway in “Bombay Dreams” and being an original cast member of the theatrical stage adaptation of “Lord of the Rings”. My favourite personal creation was directing, producing and performing in a short film in memory of Maple Batalia called “Thy Beauty’s Doom”.
