Mia’s short film's are visually evocative stories of "the everyday", tending toward representing mundane domesticity in a hyperrealist fashion.  One might call it a quotidian fetish. 

Her short films have screened at international film festivals, including the BAFTA recognized Aesthetica Short Film Festival, and most recently the 8th Cairo Video Festival in Egypt.  In the homeland, her most recent work Leisure, premiered at the Queensland Film Festival, with it's follow up screening at Channels Festival at ACMI in Melbourne in September 2017.  Her films have been honoured with awards and a number of accolades. Her music video work has been screened on ABC's Rage and nominated for a Queensland Music Award, as well as been a finalist at West End Film Festival.

Mia is a recent graduate of Griffith Film School, with a postgraduate degree in film specializing in directing, where she was recently awarded Most Outstanding Director and Best Film. Mia also studied flute at the Queensland Conservatorium.
