Hi there! I’m a Melbourne-based director and a Masters graduate of VCA Film & Television School. I adore fantasy stories, especially those which marry wonder and excitement with heartfelt human truth. I was born to two adventurous entrepreneurs, and I spent my childhood the ruler of a children’s playcentre, head-elf at the family Christmas stores and climbing trees beside the family coffee-cart at Melbourne Zoo! What developed was an imagination teeming with childhood wonder. This wonder eventually evolved into a fantasy world of my creation, where I devised characters, races, societal mechanisms and stories.
From here, my love of storytelling developed into a love for film – and shortly after graduating school, I undertook film studies at the Victorian College of the Arts, where I was able to further my passion in a professional environment.
My biggest influences include the works of Hayao Miyazaki, Tim Burton and Guillermo Del Toro.
