    Aditya was born in Jakarta, Indonesia and relocated to the United States when he was 9 to pursue his studies. He is currently an MFA in directing candidate at Columbia University in New York. In the summer of 2015 he left New York and spent 5 months in rural Indonesia to do research for the script that ultimately became Pria and another 3 months for its pre-production and principal photography. His other work includes the comedic short, Pipe Dream, which has screened in over 30 film festivals and is currently being developed as a web series by Warner Brothers Television.
