    Self-Identification: Indian-Canadian



    I’m an Indian/Caucasian Canadian theatre maker and wearer of many hats, who has been telling stories across Canada for over a decade. My career from early on has been defined by my, “Get up and go,” attitude. I wasn’t content to wait for opportunities, so I went out and made my own. My company, “Dramatic Hat Productions,” reflects this. It embodies the indomitable spirit of the indie artist, and the many hats you have to wear, in order to tell the stories, you are made to tell. “Mercury Man,” also explores this theme. My artistic mandate is to explore the chains that bind us and how we strive to overcome them.
