I'm a Nairobi based photographer and filmmaker covering East Africa and South Asia. I have worked for a variety of international media including Al Jazeera, AJ+, VICE, CNN, The Guardian, CCTV, Voice of America, Radio France International, The Daily Telegraph, and The Sunday Times. I've reported from Somalia, Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Mozambique, Iraqi Kurdistan and India. I have produced, shot and edited a number of documentaries including several 30 minute films for CCTV Africa. In 2013 I served as producer/director on a multi-camera shoot for a TV series in Mogadishu, Somalia. I am sensitive to stories that provide invaluable context for understanding breaking news, and these are the stories I aim to tell. I like finding characters whose lives say bigger things about the place and times they live in.

    Roopa did everything exactly how we asked from the shot sheet, content, to the file transfer. Even going the extra mile to ensure super-accurate local dialect translations. Her work is always beautifully shot. Back and forth communication is forthright and easy.
