I am a filmmaker whose storytelling begins in the mysteries of character, and a poet who often features dialogue in her poems. There's a back and forth in my work across both forms.

I have won international and Australian awards for my films and, in 2016, graduated with a Creative Doctorate of Arts in Screen Studies and Screenwriting from Western Sydney University.

With almost three decades experience in cinema and writing across media, I develop, write, script edit or consult on creative concepts, treatments and screenplays, film press books and synopses. In my capacity as script reader and assessor I have consulted on well over a thousand scripts for Screen Australia, Screen NSW, Screen Tasmania, SBS Independent and numerous independent filmmakers. My approach is rigorous, imaginative and sensitive to the distinctive voice of each project and creative.

I accept commissions as script consultant, filmmaker, copywriter and poet.
