As a creative producer, I’m interested in films that blend genres and sit between the lines to deliver something unexpected.

Nadia has worked in the film & television industry in both New Zealand and the UK for the last 16 years, producing since 2009 and building on a strong track record of associate producing and production managing. Her experience crosses a variety of genres, including feature films, documentaries, short films, factual series & multimedia theatre; broadcast on TVNZ, TV3, Maori Television, National Geographic, FilmFour (Channel 4 UK) and Al Jazeera International.
