I began training as an actor in the U.K while studying film and theatre at The University of Reading. Directing and Writing had always been a passion of mine and became my main focus as I continued my studies. In 2015, I obtained my M.A in Film through Raindance at Staffordshire University.
My experience as a film writer and director began in 2007 creating short films for speed film competitions, which was an excellent way to learn about independent and low budget filmmaking. Since then I have continued to write, explore and study film with a focus on independent film, low budget filmmaking and creating more opportunities for women in film.
The current project I am working on is a feature length screenplay I wrote and will direct. My projects centre around social issues as I continue to explore new ways to entertain and enlighten. This particular feature is a dramatic comedy about a Mom starting life over after escaping an abusive relationship.
