I wrote, produced and directed my first Sci-Fi Thriller, entitled 'MyWorld'. This 15 minute short film follows Gaia Silic, a social media influencer, on her quest to solve her friend's suicide. In a world ruled by social media, you can be whatever you want to be, but when the CEO of a multi-billion dollar crypto-currency and social media site is linked to the suspected homicide of one of his biggest users, Gaia and her friends find themselves in a difficult position. 

The short film was a Semi-Finalist for Best First Time Director and my acting role of Gaia Silic was nominated as a Semi-Finalist for Best Actress at the 2020 Indie X Film Fest.
