Rishan Dhamija

Cultural Consultant

Actor/Writer based out of NY. Rishan’s parents were hyped to hear that after graduating from acting school (UNC, MFA ’19), he’d get to play Doctors & IT guys on TV. Something they couldn’t get him to do in real life. He wasn’t gonna give them the satisfaction. And so, he got his second MFA in Dramatic Writing (NYU-Tisch ’21) so that he could create authentic South Asian content for himself and his friends. Rishan recently appeared on TV shows like Apple TV’s Little Voice and NBC’s New Amsterdam and will be seen next in Apple TV’s limited series WeCrashed. In his free time, he’s trying his hand at working as a finance bro at Midnight Oil Collective, a venture capital firm that is raising funds to help liberate artists.
