She is a filmmaker and Doctor of Philosophy in Film by Practice. Her documentaries plunge into a space of deep looking, from swimming in the sea (Glitter and Storm) to her latest project The Forest in Me, an essay-film about people who are cut off from the world in extraordinary ways, and the connections that bind us together.
She is a regular visiting lecturer for the MA documentary department at The London Film School.
