Hi, I’m Pari Mathur (pronounced Perry, not Pah-ree).

I grew up in Cupertino, California right behind the Apple headquarters. I never knew why people would visit us and want to go take pictures in front of a building with rainbow fruit. Weird, right?

Fast forward a few decades and my first film which I wrote and directed, Family Party, got acquired by Netflix in 2016. My second film, Lucky Fifty, premiered at the Cinequest Film Festival on March 11, 2019 and is currently available to rent or buy on iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon.

Other than that, I blog weekly about being a dad on Lifewithwifey.com and I’m currently a Senior Writer and Director at LinkedIn. My buddy took this pic of me below while we were grabbing a beer at Camino Brewery in San Jose. I was going for the constipated walrus look. I think I nailed it.

Drop me a line via the form below if you want to chat!
