I have a very specific world view I'd like to share with you, if you'd be open to reading something a bit longer than a Tweet. =)

My Background

I grew up in a family of three, my immigrant parents and I, in a one bedroom apartment that moonlit as a Hindi movie (a.k.a. Bollywood movie) rental. Their motto, "Work hard. Be kind. Rewind. And enjoy Bollywood." Okay, they didn't say the "Rewind" bit, but I couldn't help myself for all you VHS people. And in terms of Bollywood, we did. That was our family time. Where we could see ourselves, our values, our culture, our beliefs, and our music reflected in media. Not as a goofy 2-dimensional sidekick in someone else's 3-dimensional story, but a full, lovely human being with all the colors of the human experience. And very early on, this stayed with me, the desire to be a 3-dimensional human in 3-dimensional stories being told in media because my family and I were impacted so positively by it. How could I not dedicate my life to something so crucial?

My Experience As A Creator

So throughout my life, I've worked on my craft. I've played music, danced, acted, wrote, directed, and created content as early as elementary school. Professionally, I've been in entertainment as an actor, writer, and director for over 15 years, with work ranging from shorts and commercials, to television pilots and widely released films. But the missing part is being able to create the change I'd like to see.

Why AT PLAY?

I genuinely believe that content shapes not only what we think about, but how we think, act, feel. Our actions, our treatment of others, the way we use our words, in my opinion, are all shaped by what we are taught and what we consume. And recently, in December 2018, when I started creating content on TikTok and then began interacting with those consuming my content, people were attending due to the Creativity, but staying because of the Positivity, the Kindness. And after several months of creating content, and spreading positivity and kindness with the help of creators like me, the #samclan, I realized that the only way forward is to not only create content with a community of like-minded creators who believe in the power of Creativity, Positivity, and Kindness, but keep after the pursuit of happiness and staying in the process, AT PLAY, of Creativity, Positivity, Kindness, Consistency, etc.

What I'm Currently Working On

As of late, in addition to short form content (on TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, etc.), I have been working on a film screenplay for over three years, a TV series for over 10 years, and have plans to do both long form and short form content and collaborations with people all over the world. I like to see it as five parts currently: short form, long form, live shows, this Patreon, and most recently, AT PLAY.

Why I'm Asking For Contributions

The contributions from this campaign will go directly to growing the Creativity, Positivity, Kindness movement. This means, not only continue allowing me to dedicate time, energy, and resources to the type of content you've seen me create, but enabling me to:

1. Hire a creation assistant (shoot, edit, storytell) and other essential personnel
2. Build out channels for both myself AND the community (TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, etc.)
3. Arrange events/meetups in cities around the country (and world!) to shoot content together
4. Funding the AT PLAY merchandise and movement
5. Fund my longer form projects (like TV series, screenplays, etc.)

Thank You

Whether or not you are able to contribute, I sincerely appreciate your support. I will keep pushing for the change I'd like to see and welcome you (all 7.53 billion of you) on the journey of Creativity. Positivity. Kindness. AT PLAY. Thank you again.
