I grew up in a cinephile family, and knew I’d have a happy life if I could make a living making movies. After a prolific video production time in high school, I headed to Toronto to attend Ryerson University’s Radio and Television program in 1995.
Then “life happened” and I gained some off set experience in the retail and service industries before finding my way back to film through special effects makeup. I had a successful makeup career for 16 years in Toronto and Ottawa, then began Script Supervising. That’s when I realized my burning desire to be actively involved with each shot of the process… and am back on track to Direct.
I love stories about unexpected characteristics and situations, specifically from a Women’s perspective. Music is also very integral in my storytelling.
Mostly I like to have fun with other artistic “misfits” and create something interesting in the process!
