As a film writer and director, I loved bringing the ‘Story Of A Baked Brownie to life.’ It was internationally recognised, and proudly made notable by CNN. It was a project that I enjoyed working on.

I am inspired by the passion most film & TV practitioners exude. It’s a path only those who are called and truly passionate can see through.
As a film writer and director, I loved bringing the ‘Story Of A Baked Brownie to life.’ It was
internationally recognised, and proudly made notable by CNN. It was a project that I enjoyed working
on.
My work spans from being a writer, director, photographer, and a film critic over notable festivals
such as the DIFF and NAF.
Currently, my most notable work is being one of the writers on the new etv daily Isitha The Enemy.
This is a big deal for me. Another big win right now is directing an adaptation of an old play and
cannot wait to share the completion with you.
Being a swiftie is so necessary in our society! Why?:
– I love connecting with so many amazing women! It’s a vibrant community.
– A necessary organisation for women in film and television
– My highlight for being a SWIFT member is the benefit of staying updated, and knowing about
opportunities that would have easily passed me by.
Interesting fact: My muse is life. My influence has been making other young women feel that there is
a place for them (us) in this field too
