Writer, Director, Mother, Superhero?

Gillian is a screenwriter and director, primarily in TV/film, but also in theatre. Her background as a first assistant director and award-winning independent film and theatre producer has honed her writing skills and increased her ability to stay on time and on budget as a director. She has directed short films, live stage shows, and has written feature films, short films (2 produced), several web series and is currently working on a TV pilot. Gillian is also currently in production on a documentary about the postpartum experience.

Gillian is a mum of two bright and rambunctious young ones who take up much of her time. Passionate about real food, Gillian loves cooking from scratch, hates to follow a recipe, and is working on crafting the perfect gluten-free chocolate chip cookie. She’s a dedicated coffee snob (read: retired barista), enjoys kickboxing, rock-climbing, crossfit, and a good long hike, and is a closet superhero nerd who really wishes she could fly.
