We love producing creative content and gravitate toward Māori, comedy and female-led projects. We create our own documentary projects and are interested in local documentaries with heart.

We provide production services to other production companies/producers/directors when their projects are of a larger scale, or if they need local Wellington knowledge. We have a proven history of providing a smooth production experience with our invaluable local knowledge of crews, locations, contacts and cast.

Hailing from Canada, I’ve found my home in Wellington, Aotearoa.

With a background in producing animation, I love a hearty creative project in which I can fully immerse myself.

With a head for numbers, organisation and processes, I enjoy producing TVCs, documentaries, web videos, and drama.

I love to collaborate with talented people and get projects over the finish line. 

I can handle the cold weather and spend my spare time on mountains and in the sea.

I am a hands-on creative producer. I’ve worked in everything from web to features to TV and love the process of bringing a story to life.

My background includes an MFA, teaching at an art school, directing documentaries, shooting and editing, account management and event management. This has given me a breadth of experience in wrangling all kinds of creative projects and teams.

I'm softly spoken so lets not try and talk anywhere noisy.
