He began life with the Kannada film industry, but quickly moved on to news and the Enaadu group. Ashwath spent over five years with Network 18 where he picked up several awards, became Director of Photography and worked on a range of stories.
He returned to Bangalore and continued to work with news channels and soon turned his attention to training.
