ABOUT

I am a Producer based in Melbourne Australia with experience in both online and traditional media spaces, and a passion for collaborating with diverse talent to create meaningful content.

 

An alumni of the Screen Producers Australia Ones to Watch Program, and nominee for Breakthrough Business of the Year, I have a holistic understanding of the production process which compliments my passion and instinct for story.

My most recent completed production was the ABC television series Get Krack!n, described by critics as “the finest satire ever put to air on Australian television”, “comedy at its groundbreaking best” and “a must-watch for all Australians”. The series won an AWGIE Award, received an AAACTA nomination in the Best Actress category for Miranda Tapsell, and both seasons were nominated for Best Comedy at the Screen Producers Australia Awards. The project honed my creative and logistical skills as a production which combined multi-cam studio and location filming, featured over 100 cast, involved collaborations with a score of contributing writers, included multiple animals, VFX shots, animation and an original soundtrack, to mention just some of the elements involved.

 

My previous work on The Katering Show allowed me to develop the knowledge and skills pertinent to online production and distribution - be it an independent project or in collaboration with a network. The first series had 2 million views in its first week online and took out numerous awards, including Best of the Fest and Best Short Form Series at the New York Television Festival, an AWGIE, and the award for Best Comedy at ITV Festival, Melbourne Webfest and the Online Video Awards. Series two also broke the record for most watched ABC iView original program.

 

With a passion for projects that are both entertaining and thought provoking, I am currently developing a number of projects across a range of platforms, formats and genres.
