What do you do?
I am a film-maker and photographer. Sometimes I work as a director for for TV commercials or promo films or documentaries and sometimes I film and photograph aid and development work around the world. I am also a mum to two super duper girls who inspire me endlessly….
Why do you do it?
I make films because I am passionate about the medium having an amazing power to communicate ideas, thoughts and feelings. I haven't found a better way to communicate!
Where did you go for your last holiday?
I am currently on holiday in India!! Having the most amazing time!
What is your favourite item of clothing? Why?
I have a pair of mens-style suit pants that I LOVE. They are a little looser then what I normally wear but they are so stylish and simple. They go with everything and are the right amount of warm/ cool and stylish. I can work in them but don't feel too formal.
What was your favourite tv show when you were a kid?
I loved Mork and Mindy re-runs. They were only on for a little bit when I was like 8 yrs old but I remember loving it!
If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook for us?
I would probably make a great big bowl of lentil salad… full of pecans and parsley and lemon juice! YUMO!
What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
The best lesson I have learned is being grateful… taking time to reflect and be grateful has totally changed my life. Made me happier and also made me value all the 'little things' that happen everyday and are simple and small like my daughter taking my hand when we go for a walk or nice warm ugg boots on a cold morning… that is why I am doing this super cool street art project.
Are you happy with your work/life balance?
I would say I am mostly happy with it… sometimes! haha! While I am here in India doing a job for a week I am also doing 2 weeks holiday! Seems good to me! We travel a lot as a family for work and this helps keep things balanced because we have a lot of adventures together.
How do you define success?
I define success as finding what you are passionate about doing… getting to do that, mixed up with loving and being loved.
What's your spirit animal?
I just did two online quizzes 'cause I wasn't sure… and one said I was an owl and the other said I was an otter!
