is an award-winning writer and director represented by RGM Artists. Her work has been selected for over 30 national and international film festivals. She has won 12 Australian and international awards specifically for her directing and has been nominated for many more including an Australian Director’s Guild Award in 2014 for The Wonderful and in 2018 for Jade of Death.
I'm PARTICULARLY drawn to projects where I can make stylistically elevated work, so genres I thrive in are mystery, thriller, sci-fi, fantasy and magic realism.
My most recent project is the supernatural thriller series Jade of Death (6 x 10” or 1 x 60”) which was nominated for 11 awards at the International Academy of Web Television in LA and won 4 awards including Best Series, Best Director and Best Ensemble Cast. In 2016 I was one of handful of directors selected from around the world for the Berlinale Talent Campus at the Berlin International Film Festival, and my series Jade of Death was one of ten projects selected for the Berlinale Project Lab. The series premiered this year in Australia at the Sydney Mardi Gras Film Festival, and has just been selected as one of 16 independent television pilots for official competition at SeriesFest. The next instalment of the series is in development with ABC and Screen Australia and I’m excited to be co-writing this time with frequent collaborator Huna Amweero.
In 2015 I was awarded Screen Australia's Talent Escalator Funding to complete a Director’s Attachment with Kriv Stenders on the Essential Media and Entertainment television production The Principal. During this attachment I directed the EPK for the Australian network SBS.
In 2014 I directed a scene on the Australian and German co-production of the children’s series In Your Dreams for Endemol Entertainment and Australian network Seven2 during my Director’s Attachments with Ralph Strasser.
That year I was also one of three filmmaking teams in the state selected for the Emerging Filmmakers Fund from Screen NSW for my short psychological thriller Alone (written by Huna Amweero).
I've worked with some fantastic Australian actors on my films including Ashleigh Cummings, Susan Prior, Max Cullen, Sara West, Richard Green, Charlotte Best, Nathaniel Dean, Shari Sebbens, Leeanna Walsman and Nicholas Hope.
