Martha has always considered herself a storyteller, whether as a journalist or a narrative director/writer, and her work has been recognized with awards and critical recognition. She has worked in such far-flung places as Pakistan, Cambodia, Mozambique, Mexico and Texas, and jokes that she’s had guns pointed at her in nine different languages!
Her news background led to a string of film opportunities, including UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL, VOLCANO, DEEP IMPACT, ENEMY OF THE STATE, THE NEGOTIATOR, an HBO film, as well as a John Wells NBC pilot. Her AFI Directing Workshop for Women short, GLORY GIRL qualified for Oscar consideration.
She dabbled in visual effects directing a 3D documentary on the origins of the universe, then did an about face directing a successful short on her iPhone.
She enjoys writing as well as directing and partnered with Peter Tortorici on a series for basic cable. She continues to ‘make stuff up’ for a variety of clients.
