Hi, I'm Monica! (she/they) I'm a filmmaker from Aotearoa, New Zealand. My fascination for human life has led me to storytelling. It's how I understand myself & the world around me.


I directed Our Aotearoa, winner of 'Best NZ Short Film' at Doc Edge Film Festival 2022 which is available on RNZ (Radio New Zealand). Early 2024 I ventured over to Singapore on the Asia New Zealand Foundation documentary internship for mentorship from some of the best documentary producers and directors in Asia at Beach House Pictures.

Over the years I've collaborated with globally recognised companies such as Universal Music (United States) and Beach House Pictures (Singapore). I've also worked with New Zealand-based organisations & companies such as Te Papa Tongarewa (National Museum of New Zealand), Ministry for Culture and Heritage, Ministry of Education, People First, Kiwiwealth, and Cash Converters NZ.

As a filmmaker, working with diverse and inclusive communities is integral to my practice as it brings about different perspectives to create innovative & impactful films.
