After receiving the 2015–16 Martin Scorsese Young Filmmakers Scholarship, he graduated magna cum laude from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in May 2016 with B.F.A. in Film & Television.
His award-winning short film Breathe In Breathe Out has screened at festivals around the world and was the recipient of a 2017 Sundance Ignite Fellowship.

In fall 2017, Sachin was selected to participate in the Sundance Episodic Lab, where he workshopped his miniseries The Prince of Hyde Park with leading TV creatives and pitched to executives from networks like HBO, FX, and Netflix. The pilot for The Prince of Hyde Park continues to be read by agents, executives, and producers in the TV sphere.
Sachin’s recent pitch and script for a commercial highlighting the history of civil rights in New York was a grand prize winner of the Celebrate Equality NY Film Challenge, and his most recent short film, The Alternative, will have a festival run in 2018.
Sachin’s recent credits also include The Tony Beat, a docu-series commissioned by The Broadway Channel that follows the editors of Broadway.com as they navigate the chaos of the 2016 Tony Awards season. The series features A-list talent like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Lupita Nyong’o, and Jessica Lange.
