About me

I'm Shlok Kaneria and I am a creator. I have a passion for Machine Learning and AI, and love researching on these topics! Through the years, I have used creative outlets and innovative ideas to successfully create mobile apps, websites and other projects in collaboration with other entrepreneurs. I also love to make films (check them out here), and create art with inspiration from my travels.

With an entrepreneurial mindset and a passion for innovation, I am excited for what the future has in store and where my career takes me. Below are just a couple of the things that I dabble in during my free time. Thanks for looking at my work, I look forward to collaborating soon...

Short films have the ability to evoke memories, connect with an audience, and alter the way we see things. They take us to other places.

I have had a desire to tell stories, and I am never quite satisfied. From the moment I first learned how to click record on a camera, to piloting drones and capturing footage from a perspective unseen from the surface, making movies has become a passion. Follow my travels by staying connected and watching my latest videos!
