Eve started making films when she discovered a video camera in her basement at the age of eleven. Her first feature film BRUT FORCE, a wine country thriller distributed by XYZ Films, is available to rent/buy on Amazon, AppleTV, Google Play and more.

She has backpacked solo to nineteen countries and visited twenty more. After graduating with a B.A. in Film Studies from Columbia University, Eve's twin passions for film and travel came together at New York University’s Tisch Asia program in Singapore, where she earned her MFA. Her thesis film Tether, shot on location in Guatemala, screened at film festivals including Palm Springs, Rhode Island, and Newport Beach. Eve is based in Los Angeles, where she spent several years assisting producer/director Rob Lorenz (AMERICAN SNIPER, MILLION DOLLAR BABY). She directs commercials, produces branded videos for BuzzFeed, has produced films for the AFI Directing Workshop for Women and the Alliance of Women Directors.

Eve's debut screenplay CALIFORNIANAS was an Academy Nicholls Fellowship Semifinalist and a Slamdance Screenplay Competition Semifinalist. Her Indian-American comedy ORIENTATION was an Austin Screenwriting Competition Finalist and was selected for the Women at Sundance Financing Intensive. She is currently developing and packaging several feature film projects as writer/director.
