Making lifelong friends that share my passion for visual stories.



There are so many highs every day in production, but I’m proud of starting conversations about diversity on screen with women at the front and centre of our stories such as in Janet King and ANZAC Girls or hot button issues like trust and consent in The Hunting, and recently having produced The Tourist a large scale international production made in South Australia.
