Hey, I'm Catriona!

Jersey City, New Jersey
  1. Hey world! 

I am a female filmmaker, director and actor. Originally from England, I am now a proud New Yorker and Jersey City-zen!!

I have been working in theater for almost 25 years, and about a decade in independent film.

Most of my film work has been as either an assistant director or a producer, but I have now started to expand my work as a director and I'm very excited to see what the future has in store.
