About Emma

Originally from Adelaide, Australia, Emma began her professional creative career in London in 1997. Most notably she worked as an actor, writer and assistant director at the Royal Court Theatre and the BBC. She was nominated for the Sony and Prix d' Europe Awards for 'Something to Declare’ (1998), a collaborative radio play she wrote and performed in for BBC Radio 4.

In 2000 Emma flew to Chicago, USA, to audition for the critically acclaimed Steppenwolf Theatre Company. She was accepted into the professional actor training program, the School at Steppenwolf, and worked with some of the finest actors, writers and directors in the world.

In 2001 she founded Bread Crumbs Theatre Company in Sydney, Australia. She produced, directed and performed in two highly successful productions in Sydney, ‘Mud in your Eye: The Dorothy Parker Story’ and ‘Crumbs on the Radio’.

Emma’s greatest passion is filmmaking. She founded the production company, Sunflower Sings, in 2011, USA. She’s particularly interested in telling magical realist stories.

In 2016 Emma wrote, directed and edited her very first short narrative film, ‘Sunflower Sings’. The creation of this film has been one of the most rewarding experiences of her life so far. ‘Sunflower Sings’ was officially selected for 10 international film festivals, it won 2 Audience Choice Awards, and was a finalist of the highly prestigious Stage 32 Short Film Competition in Los Angeles.
