Roxanne Phoenix (former Oxana Kriss) grew up in Odessa, Ukraine, during the Soviet Union time. She got her first degree, MBA, in Moscow and began to explore the World. She had been living and working in Moscow, UAE, Portugal, Cyprus, and France. There she used to lead, create, own, and manage different businesses, including tourism companies, cargo airlines, and international employment agencies. In 2009 she got settled in Australia. She studied Law in UNSW and got a Master's in Human Rights Law and Policy. She became interested in film making and studied it independently in the Australian Film Base school and the former documentary school Metro in Sydney. In 2016 Roxanne started her video production brand Golden Salamander Media. In 2017 Roxanne and her 8 years old son Nikita left Australia to explore Mexico. They spent a year in Mexico. The result of their exploration were two documentaries - "One Day with Doctor Sergio" and "Drop the School and Go Travel". Nikita took an active part in both films as a subject and as a camera person, researcher, storyteller, and presenter.
Roxanne is finishing the post production stage of "Drop the School and Go Travel", creating short films and music videos, playing small gigs as a musician (guitar+vocal) and homeschooling her son. Nikita is 11. He loves film making and studies it independently online. Both of them, Roxanne and Nikita, are planning the next film. Roxanne is a single mother of two. Her daughter is 25. She is a nurse in the emergency department in Sydney hospital.
