I was born in Africa, 'at the foot of the Ngong Hills', and just like OUT OF AFRICA'S Author Karen Blixen, I love to hear a story told well.
Adelaide, South Australia has been home for almost 40 years now and it's where I write and create content for work, and for pleasure.
After an early marketing career in banking & insurance (CitiCorp Sydney, SGIC Adelaide, Grimley JR Eve London, TABCORP Melb) I transitioned into media production in 2006, when I joined my husband in his business VOOTN Voice & Video, as Production Manager.
Since then, I've written scripts for clients’ TV, Radio & corporate productions, cast and directed professional Actors, and edited broadcast-quality video and audio productions.
During working hours, I am guilty of pining for the worlds of my imagination. Some of those worlds I've brought to life as short films - AS MAD AS A CUT SNAKE (writer, producer, director) & GLORIA PORTIA SCOTT (writer, director - in-development). I've pitched feature films and TV series with some in discussion for options in 2021.
