Since moving to London in 2008, Charlotte has worked continuously as a director and writer, making more than 100 short films, as well as directing broadcast TV and developing feature film and original TV projects.

In 2011 she was the online director for Series 3 of EastEnders: E20 (BBC3) and made behind-the-scenes content for the flagship drama. That same year she wrote and directed a new online drama series aimed at teenage fathers, Me and My Dad, for award-winning website YoungDads.TV and later directed a soap opera written by young people, Dead Ends, for Nick Hornby’s literacy charity Ministry of Stories.

Charlotte has directed the Electronic Press Kit for many high-profile drama series, including Happy Valley Series 2, From Darkness, The Honourable Woman (BBC), No Offence and Banana (for C4/E4). In 2016, Charlotte was selected to take part in the Channel 4/Directors UK scheme for women directors on Hollyoaks and then went on to direct 4 episodes, before taking time out earlier this year to have a baby.

As a writer, Charlotte has a feature film in development, Bird, with Underground Films in Dublin, supported by the Irish Film Board, as well as a TV comedy with Urban Myth/Guilty Party, Invisible, along with other original projects.

Charlotte excels in exploring difficult subject matters but with wit and warmth. Her aim is to write and direct high quality, entertaining fictionalised projects, which have the potential to introduce new audiences to characters and situations they might not otherwise encounter.
