I have always been inspired by great filmography, the perfect components of mise-en-scene, music, transition and Auteur style choices.
I am actively seeking new styles and use my skills from acting in Film and Theatre to craft the perfect story.
Creating film is truly a unique platform for artists to express imagery in their mind by applying it to moving image on screen. I'm thoroughly inspired and motivated by the stylistic choices of Baz Luhrmann and Wes Anderson.
I plan on using my theatrical knowledge to create visually theatrical moving productions.

I am currently writing and researching for various upcoming productions.
I am particularly interested in exploring untold stories, real gritty stories that reflect
the world we currently live on.
At this current moment I am very influenced by the notion of Times Up, Women in the Arts,
Poverty, Culture, the LGBTQ community and I have many stories in mind to tell that pull on
ideas in Fiction and real stories.
These are a mixture of Short, experimental and Feature Film.
Life's a Drag- Short Drama
Life's a Drag explores a tale of a Drag Queen who wishes to be free however is suppressed by their community and lives in solitude. Alone and undiscovered, our Drag Queen finds a straddler who too wishes for a different life. Together they seek solace in one another, however both have a dark secret, both just as deadly as the other. Nothing is what it seems.
Pouring Tea- Short Spoken Word
Pouring Tea depicts a cluster of Waiters and Waitresses who wait and wait and wait for their purpose in life. Hustling through the busy bustle of the cafe they all individually suffer. This is a spoken word experimental film written by Jodie Davey.
Recall- Short Drama
Recall portrays the elusive suffering that some Actors may face in a fast paced industry where we obsess to compare and look at others instead of truly looking at ourselves. We follow the story of a young and fresh Actress from the country side who has recently moved to the Big Smoke, full of determination and wishes to make it, whatever it takes. We watch as she discovers what is fiction and what is not.
The Ticket- Short Drama
The Ticket portrays the need for rehabilitation. We watch a young Agnostic man who seeks peace and change of heart within a chapel, only to be hounded by the demons from his past, Charlie and Mandy. Will he be able to shake these away? Find out and see.
These Films will be endorsed by online fund-raising of which will cover equipment, venue hire, Actors and expenses.
I will be writing, researching and submitting a prospective
Film to the BFI of which I truly hope can open doors for
more young people in the industry and celebrate East Asian
Culture in Westernised Countries.
This Tale is called 'Naty' Working Title.
It explores true events and is loosely based off of my Mother's
experiences a women born and raised in the wondrous land
that is Philippines.
We will reveal the beauty, the dexterity and sheer
determination that one young girl from a tiny Kalinga
province in mainland Philippines dreamed of having and how
she travelled far and wide beyond her borders
in honour of a promise to her mother.
Funding is open to the public via GO FUND ME.
Funding will help support - location, actors, research and development, Pre production, equipment, editing, sound and everything and everyone in between.
I can not wait to fund this project and to get it moving. I wish to celebrate my heritage and Filipino culture and bring it to Western movie theatres. This film will explore the themes of Culture and women in support of the movement TIMES UP.
