Hi! I’m Shruti. I'm a screenwriter.
I've lived all over the world, but spent my formative years in Michigan and went to undergrad at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where I studied Biology. I still get a lot of inspiration from ideas in science and technology and I love writing high-concept stories. Currently, I'm working on a Soderbergh-y global finance drama about cryptocurrency.
My sci-fi comedy pilot, Before Mars, is about a bunch of nerds prepping for a journey to Mars at a space program run by an eccentric multi-millionaire. It was a top 75 finalist in Tracking Board Pilot Launch Competition, a top 17 semi-finalist in the Finish Line Script Competition, and a quarterfinalist at the Austin Film Festival in 2017.
I wrote and created the comedy web series Gym Buddies. It's a a fitness satire about two women who decide to start weight lifting! It’s super fun, lady-driven, and even has a musical episode! You can watch it here.
I once tried writing a novel, but it was really short and triple-spaced with wonky margins and too much dialogue. No idea what happened there.
