Storytelling is a profession, past-time and a passion. I’ve worked in the screen and media industries since last century and now have several years in education.
They’re a good mix, giving me a parallel career. As a woman child-free by choice, it’s a joy to give back by nurturing the next wave of emerging filmmakers.
I’ve written, produced and directed short films that screened in various local and international festivals. Won some laurels and awards. OKK aka Outback Killer Koalas (feature) was a semi-finalist in the Animal Logic / Truant Pictures Screenplay Contest. Kiss My Ink (feature) was a finalist in the Filmmaker’s Factory Treatment Contest.
Short film Red-Handed (director Tony Tilse DGA) was an AACTA nominee & won numerous awards and laurels internationally. I originally wrote it as a feminist political play (performed in Short+Sweet, the world’s largest short play festival) and it found a horror/thriller audience as a film.
