About me
I am an award-winning writer and director who has worked across several disciplines including film, podcast creation, arts journalism and curation. I create work with broad audiences in mind and the desire to dramatise the ordinary, especially the daily challenges faced by women. I am interested in visualising modern life and the issues of technology through a historical gaze; creating works which fuse popular culture and aesthetics from the past and present. I am developing a career directing and creating fashion films, music videos and longer form content.
Projects

    The Waiting Room Short FilmA short film I created and starred in during Lockdown. The film is currently on the festival circuit and won an award at the Berlin Indie Film Festival last week.

    My Morning RoutineLured by images of ‘glass skin perfection’ a young woman enters the world of a morning makeup routine only to discover it is not as perfect as it first seems. An experimental and darkly ironic film which holds the mirror up to past and present toxic beauty standards and unattainable ideals of perfection.
