She brings this experience, as well as her instincts for compelling, commercial stories, to her company Last Frame Productions.

Her latest project Jade of Death, a 6-part thriller, created by Erin Good, has already created enormous buzz as a festival favourite before it’s official launch.

A second season of Jade of Death is currently in development with the ABC.
