I am an Australian writer, director and multi-disciplinary artist living and working in the UK.
My debut narrative short film, Call History, screened at festivals around Australia, including the Melbourne and Brisbane International Film Festivals, Flickerfest, Mardi Gras Film Festival and Melbourne Queer Film Festival. Call History takes place in one room with one character to capture the claustrophobia of grief and the intensity of a first queer love. In 2018, I wrote and directed a short documentary, Lives In Action, alongside Hawanatu Bangura as part of the Bus Stop Films program. We mentored and collaborated with 13 students with intellectual disabilities to develop the film, which has screened at numerous festivals and is available on SBS On-demand, a major Australian broadcaster.
Over the past few years, I have been experimenting with non-narrative video artmaking. Cloud Exchange (2020) was made as part of a collaborative community project and screened online during COVID-19 lockdown. In 2020, I was selected for You Are Here’s Cahoots artist development program. During the program, I developed an iteration of a larger project, Sunder.
In 2021, I was part of the Midsumma Pathways Mentorship programme, aimed at LGBTQIA+ artists with disabilities and Accelerator lab, Melbourne International Film Festival’s workshop programme for short film directors moving into feature filmmaking. I have worked for several years as an assistant director, researcher and director’s assistant on feature films, short films, and television commercials.
I currently work as an episode writer on historical documentaries and am developing a number of short and feature projects.
