As a model and actress, she has shot for numerous athletics, fashion, and lifestyle clients and has appeared in feature and short films. Specializing in celebrity impressions, she performs at comedy showcases in Los Angeles and her viral celebrity impressions have been recognized by celebrities such as Padma Lakshmi, Natalie Portman, Chrissy Teigen, Dorit Kemsley and media groups such as

She was formerly a part of a sketch comedy group in Los Angeles and recently starred in the play, Three Chords and the Truth, at the renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In 2019, Eshaana was diagnosed with breast cancer; she is passionate about normalizing the rare and harsh realities of being a young adult with an “old” illness, destigmatizing the taboos, and fleshing out the often reductive narratives of illness and ability in story as she navigates survivorship as a working artist. Outside of storytelling, she enjoys fashion, music, and the World Cup.
