I’m a writer-director living and working between Los Angeles and Australia.
My feature film adaptation of the best selling romance novel, THE WILL by Kristen Ashley releases on Passionflix Valentine’s Day 2020.
BACK OF THE NET starring Disney’s Sofia Wylie was released on cinema screens across Australia in 2019 and was released as a Disney Channel Original in the USA in time for the Women’s World Cup. It is currently screening worldwide on Netflix and Foxtel in Australia.
JUCY (TIFF 2010) was released internationally on Netflix in 2011 after a successful festival run.
ALL MY FRIENDS ARE LEAVING BRISBANE (Best Film Natfilm festival, Copenhagen 2008) started out as a credit card feature and ended up running for seven weeks on cinema screens. It remains a local cult film in Brisbane.
My television directing experience includes beloved UK-Australian series NEIGHBOURS, comedy series SLUT (2019) and STAGE MUMS (10 Peach channel 2018).
I have directed for the stage including the world premiere and touring productions of Sidekicks (2012 Old 505 Theatre, 2013 Melbourne Comedy Festival, 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival).
A graduate of the Australian national film school (AFTRS) and the UCLA professional program in screenwriting, I have recently completed my PHD studies (University of Technology Sydney) where I researched feminist neo noir film.
My work is typically fun, smart and gutsy.
