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. It’s currently available to watch for free on YouTube and Facebook (or else for purchase on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, or Vudu—if you want to help send my kids to college).

I blog weekly about being a dad on Lifewithwifey.com and I’m currently a Senior Writer and Director at LinkedIn. Below is a pic of me sitting awkwardly (my specialty) on the set of my 2nd feature film in early 2018 called, Lucky Fifty. We’re currently in post production and I can’t wait to share it with all of you later this year! Drop me a line via the form below if you want to Chat-a-saurus Rex.
