I am privileged to work as an Impact Producer for powerful social change documentaries - creating campaigns to inspire communities, organisations and individuals to make a positive difference on pressing societal issues. I have over 25 years of experience in PR, marketing, events and digital communications, and project and event management. I enjoy using my experience to grow audiences for films and help to develop meaningful partnerships. For the last six years, I have worked as an Impact Producer at Documentary Australia for award-winning Australian documentary films, including Backtrack Boys (Dir. Catherine Scott), Incarceration Nation (Dir. Dean Gibson), Visible Farmer web-series (Dir. Gisela Kauffman and Producer Carston Orlt), Delikado (Dir. Karl Malakunas), and have mentored over 20 environmental films as part of the Documentary Australia Environmental Incubator in 2020/21. In 2022/23, I will be working on the Documentary Australia Environmental Accelerator program and I am looking forward to mentoring new Impact Producers in the inaugural Documentary Australia Impact Producer Program.
