Martha is currently prepping a short as a teaser to a longer project. She's always writing, creating and looking for interesting stories to tell, as a writer, director or producer. She has always considered herself a storyteller, as an award-winning journalist or a narrative director/writer. 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.
