Ravi’s directorial debut is the real-life romantic comedy MEET THE PATELS. Executive Produced by Academy Award Winner Geralyn Dreyfous. The film features Ravi’s family and his comedic take on a sequence of events that involve his mother and his love-life. The film has been recently acquired by Alchemy for national theatrical release this summer.

As an actor, Ravi is most recognized for his work on SCRUBS, IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, TRANSFORMERS, POWDER BLUE, THE NEW NORMAL, and every failed pilot from the last ten years.

For each bar they sell, TBSL donates a life-saving meal packet to a child in need. Ravi also co-manages an investment group which focuses primarily on health, wellness, and social enterprise startups.



Prior to joining the entertainment industry, Ravi was an investment banker and later founded the popular poker magazine ALL IN. He graduated from The University of North Carolina with double majors in Economics and International Studies. He's a die-hard Bears fan with incredible hipster-adjacent hair.
