About Me

My interest is about characters first. The question always is, who is this for and who will this resonate with? What are the quirks and daily conflicts these characters face? What makes them unique, raw and beautiful?

I've been working in the film industry for nearly a decade, treading the line between directing and writing creative projects and producing and production managing large commercials. My production experience helps me understand exactly what I need to do to make a creative vision a reality. Before I started working behind the scenes, though, I was a performer up front and center.

I performed as an actress for 15 years.  I studied performance art at the University of Exeter, one of the most competitive Drama programs in the UK. In 2014, I took on my first Directing role to create a dark, modern dance based adaptation of “Spring Awakening: the musical.” The performance earned me the award of “Best New Director” from the “Directors Guild of Great Britain.”


Eventually, my love for the outdoors brought me to the film industry. I wanted to create stories with nature as a backdrop urging viewers to get outside. My past acting experience drives me to write and direct work that is predominately character driven. I still remember what it's like to dive fully into a character. When developing a story or forming a paper edit I work hard to fully represent my actors performance or real people's struggles (in non-fiction work), sharing their inner conflicts and quirks that makes each person individual and special.
