About me

Experienced producer in short films, music promos and branded content both as an in-house and freelance having risen up the ranks since 2013. Her latest work as a producer has been on Little Pyongyang, a cinematic documentary directed by Roxy Rezvany, which unveils the depths of lost longing and legacy in the rich array of stories amongst North Korean defectors who have escaped their homeland to live in a leafy London suburb. It will have its World Premiere at CPH:DOX 2018 where it is nominated for the NEXT:WAVE Award. Previously she was working at the TATE as an in-house producer, on global campaigns, producing a variety of films and trailers to promote exhibitions such as David Hockney, Georgia O’Keeffe, Wolfgang Tillmans among others.  She is a founding member of the female film collective Sorta Kinda Maybe Yeah - a female film collective with a DIY, collaborative and inclusive approach to filmmaking. She produced, edited and starred in its eponymous web series which has been covered by Dazed, i-D, Gal-dem, ASOS and worked with MONKI, International Cinema Organisation, Gal-dem, V&A. They have screened work and run DIY filmmaking workshops at the BFI, Brainchild Festival, Underwire Festival, among others. The collective was recently chosen by development scheme Modern Tales to develop their long-form project Orchids.
