In 1980 I found myself, by default working in a very busy channel 7 Newsroom - editing news stories for Teletext and not yet 18.  

The 90's and I had moved across through advertising into Drama - typing my first scripts for Rafferty's Rules. Then to Melbourne Via living in UK and Crawford Productions soon had me sitting in the Flying Doctors Script Department. 

A move over to Production departments and training as a Casting Director for Maura Faye - I now look back on having a credit in some form on TV or a Feature Film each year for the past 30+ years and with my Agency and Legal Clearance service, am fortunate enough to be working across all current Productions in Australia and NZ.

I've juggled having a family and working, something that is also now changing with relaxed understanding work places finally on the landscape - and am a huge advocate for the rights of Young People and Children in our Industry and am proud to say I work in the Australian Film and Television Industry where I have watched a return to creators having their complete control on their vision currently working with a "Show-Runner" model - and believe we are returning to 'story' and 'cinematography' and most proudly that Integrity and Professionalism continue to shine through..

The next couple of years are setting up to be a very exciting and interesting time.

If you know your politicians faces - I did a little bit of picture double casting for "Open Slather" - enjoy!!


Setting up a data base for a film or TV series of Extras is some of the most rewarding Casting I have ever done- setting a scene with background folk is truly an art, finding picture doubles, creating an overseas or historic genre - as I have in, LIttle Oberon where I filled Marysville with Twins and Pregnant women, Saddle Club where I cast a double for every rider,  INXS where I had to create every town on a perfume bottle spanning decades, from nudes to rock chicks, and up coming film Promised a 1970's depictation of Italian families in Melbourne, always within the constraints of costume and location requirements.
