About Me

Inspiring people has become paramount to my creative voice.

Originally from the Gold Coast, Australia, I have since traveled to develop my craft as a storyteller; both as a filmmaker and an actor.

In 2018, I graduated with a Bachelor of Film Production from SAE Creative Media Institute in Melbourne, Australia and in 2015, I graduated from the Howard Fine Acting Studio.

I co-founded Taival Films (2017) with a vision to develop stories with meaning, showcasing the beauty of human connection, which lead us to create the Future Creatives Initiative (2018); a campaign to give a voice to women filmmakers and creators.

I directed the film Next Train from Castlemaine (2018). This film explores how, that even in later stages of life, we still have dreams to fulfill. It recently premiered at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood at the Golden State Film Festival, and was accepted into the International New York Film Festival and has since travelled the festival route globally

The Girl with One Eyelash  is a documentary I had the honor of Co-writing and Directing. We wanted to show the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity and illness, as well as the importance of love. It was the winner of Best Student Film at the Australian Independent Film Festival, and selected into the World Wide Women Festival in the US.
