    Ireland

    Originally from Northern Ireland, she is a director who has won multiple awards for her music videos, short films and commercials. She made her breakthrough with the video ‘Open Eye Signal’ for Jon Hopkins and followed this with work for James Vincent McMorrow and Bryan Ferry. Her short film for U2’s ‘Every Breaking Wave’ brought her back to Ireland where she had the idea for KISSING CANDICE. Her commercials are amongst the boldest in the industry. In 2017 she was the only female director to win a spot in the coveted Super Bowl ad break.
