Before you took photos and made movies you were a pro surfer, today how do you define yourself?
I want to be a filmmaker, that's where all my intention is now. I want to be directing feature films, so that's where all of my focus has been for the last year. I still surf everyday but I let that die away a bit. I'm an image maker I guess.
Are you conscious of those different interests bleeding into each other in your work?
I think everything links in some way, I mean even my colours - the washed out blues and creams - all tie back to nature and my experience of the ocean.
Looking at your work thematically, what are the key subjects or concerns you find yourself returning to?
As a young woman I find myself interested in the female experience. And being gay I'm drawn to sexuality and love, particularly between two girls or two boys. That's where I end up, intentionally or not. All my filmmaking seems to come back to romance lately.
