Teresa's second short documentary “I’m Coming Home” screened at Antenna Film Festival 2015 and won a Gold-Remi at World Fest-Houston. After graduating from film school, Teresa worked as a production manager in “Unplanned America” (SBS), “Psychics in The Suburbs” (ABC TV), and as camera operator/assistant on “The Commons” (Stan), “Undercurrent” (Ch7), “Dead Scientists” (Discovery Channel) and TED-ex Australia.
