    About me

    I’m an independent writer and director who is eager to create films focusing on women, childhood and the environment. I learned my independent filmmaking skills at university, where I studied Film Production and I now work in the Production and AD departments on high budget features such as Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (Netflix) and Fantastic Beasts (Warner Brothers), as well as continuing my work on short films as a 1st AD.

    In 2019 I directed a short film focusing on an isolated young girl in rural Ireland, and since then I have been keen to continue depicting the worlds of young women. I also have an unyielding passion to preserve and protect our world and make films that expose its unknown realities. With these themes in mind – I have written various scripts over the past 4 years and look to direct a feature length project in the near future.
