I Co-founded Big Serious Studios, alongside industry veterans Katrina Peers and David Peers, to pioneer new forms of children's entertainment at the intersection of art and science. I'm passionate about the transformative power of storytelling and the joy of lifelong learning, Big Serious combines both of these things to create television, films and story worlds that not only entertain but enlighten.
I'm a Writers' Guild Award-winning screenwriter, the Co-founder of Big Serious Studios, and the Author of the graphic novel Opposite Land (Penguin Random House). I'm also a director for animated television (Kangaroo Beach), a children's television presenter (Get Arty), the voice behind a number of cartoon characters (The Blinky Bill Movie, Tashi, Heidi, Figaro Pho), and a retired professional fairy.

Screenwriting & development
You might recognise my voice in the Blinky Bill Movie or The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill television series where I play Marcia the Mouse. I also play various characters in the Tashi TV series, Heidi series, and The Adventures of Figaro Pho.
I'm a host on all four seasons of Get Arty, which screened on Channel 7 in Australia and on Foxtel's Discovery Kids across South East Asia. I pitched and presented how-to segments for the show, including how-to: paint friend's faces to look like alien lizard people (naturally), draw ballerhinos (that's a ballet dancing rhino), and turn fish-shaped soy sauce containers into earrings (recycling but make it farrrshion).
