Hey there! I’m Monisha and it’s great to greet you! I’m super excited to be joining The Orchard Team and look forward to getting to know everyone. In the meantime, here’s a little bit about me…
I was born and raised in the suburbs just outside NYC, round about a little artsy village north of the Hudson, called Nyack. Post Nyack, I spent many years living in Buffalo, NY assisting in the management of one of the city’s most legendary indie music venues catering to such acts as, Moe, Jeru the Damaja, Every Time I Die, and Fishbone.
Upon my return to the New York Metropolitan Area, or as Buffalonians like to say, “Downstate,” I was offered the opportunity to continue working in support of my passion for Arts and Entertainment becoming a consultant to a number of film festivals in Venue and Programming Operations, starting and ending with the Tribeca Film Festival as Screenings Operations Manager.
But alas, home is where the heart is and after many years of living a nomadic lifestyle, I am ready and eager to settle down and make a home for myself both personally and professionally. Aside from work, you can find me in my kitchen cooking, in my car singing, in the park playing with my pitbull, at the bar shooting pool, on the phone making reservations, on the dance floor… well, you know, or simply on my couch watching Netflix.
Now that you know a little bit about me, please feel free to drop me a line in the comments to say hello!
