Joseph Patel

INDIAN-AMERICAN WRITER & PRODUCER ON CHOOSING A LESS-TRADITIONAL CAREER PATH AND HOW BETTING ON HIMSELF WAS HIS BEST BET YET.

Academy Award, BAFTA and Independent Spirit Award-winning producer, writer, director and truly gifted storyteller. The first-ever South Asian to win an Oscar in the category of documentary feature! What an incredible year it has been for Joseph Patel, as you'll learn from this episode. From changing his name Moneesh to a more 'white sounding' one at a young age, to hanging out in Questlove's apartment in Philly at 4am, to his most recent project on serving as a producer on the Sundance award-winning documentary Summer of Soul, Joseph's shared with us his ups, downs and everything else in between.
