Since graduating from the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) in 2010, I have been on a mission to create films that are as moving as they are striking. This has seen me experiment with dramatic short films, music videos, and fashion films. My work is emotive and sensory, with a decidedly female point-of-view.
I developed my eye for beautiful aesthetics as a prop maker and set dresser in the art departments of various Australian film and television productions, including Wish You Were Here, Spirited, and Not Suitable For Children. I then branched out on my own as a Production Designer, creating immersive worlds for Universal Music, Sony, and EMI music videos.
My work as a designer led to a natural move into fashion. I have directed film editorials for Kelsey Genna Bridal, North of South, The Gold Hatted Lovers, and Project Runway winner Dylan Cooper.
My training as a director came on the sets of blockbuster feature films. I have worked as an Assistant Director on such productions as The Great Gatsby, The Wolverine, Unbroken, Gods of Egypt, Wonderland, Redfern Now, and 2:22. My experience working closely with some of the world's most acclaimed directors - including Baz Luhrmann, Angelina Jolie, Alex Proyas and James Mangold - has been pivotal in developing my style, methodology, and intentions.
In 2015, I joined the team at Paper Moose - an award-winning production company in Sydney - as their first female director. There I created a trilogy of music videos for Universal Music's Vera Blue. My short film promoting marriage equality - We Will - went viral in January 2016, with over 4 million views.
I was recently one of three directors awarded Screen NSW's Generator: Emerging Filmmaker's Fund for 2017 to write and direct a short film - Bodies, a feminist drama set in high school. Aquarius Films (Lion, Berlin Syndrome) will executive produce.
My goal is to create feature films and high concept television with fresh, compelling, and important stories told with elegance and attitude. I am currently writing a miniseries based on a true story of the Australian frontier.
