What’s your favourite film?

Drop Dead Gorgeous

What drew you to working in production?

Watching films like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Gladiator on a projector with my extended family as a kid on (rainy) holidays in the west of Ireland made me want to make films/tv shows that bring people together in that way.

What kind of projects are you drawn to?

Playful genre projects with heart, a wicked sense of humour, and complicated female relationships. And spooky shit!

What’s a favourite song of yours?

Wicked Game by Chris Isaak

What’s a memorable moment on the job?

On my very first day on a set, I got stung by a bee on my eyelid and was dramatically rushed off to the Eye and Ear Hospital.
