Guru Ramanathan
Guru Ramanathan is a sophomore majoring in Dramatic Writing at Tisch with a minor in Producing. Born in India but living in Boston for most of his life, Guru lives and breathes film to the point where every other thing he says is probably a movie quote. After living in Boston for so long, he was initially very confused by the lack of Dunkin' Donuts in NYC but grew to love Starbucks' hot chocolate. His favorite films include Inception, Goodfellas, and Spirited Away, and was also a tennis and piano player for ten years each. If you ever need to find him he will most likely be on the seventh floor of Bobst or the one half seventh floor of Tisch given to the Dramatic Writing department.
