Who knew one would find out so much about ones’ self at my age!
Hello, I am a neurodiverse (ADHD) creative who has been involved in a career in communications and entertainment since the age of five.
I have only recently been diagnosed with ADHD and I can not tell you how much peace this has given me.
I was orphaned by my adoptive parent’s death when I was 15 and have lived on my own since I was 16. My life has always been about being the best version of myself and staying curious.
In the last 5 years, I have found my birth mother and my birth father’s family. How interesting it has been to find out one’s roots and finally have some understanding of where you come from.
I trained as a writer but have spent most of my life in the film industry. Producer, Writer, Director, Editor, VFX Producer, Script Supervisor.
Being ADHD makes so much sense now!
As I continue to explore my relationship with storytelling – I have been writing a semi-autobiographical novella. I see myself as a member of the ‘Lost Generation of Female Storytellers’ in the Film Industry – where there were no opportunities once one moved past making short films … I have always continued creating no matter the format as that is what I must do. Writing is what is available to me now.
I believe in the insistence of wonder as the sieve for meaning.
