Mikaela is a screenwriter and cinematographer from the UK, currently living on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia.

Part of the LGBTIQ+ community and coming from a mixed-race heritage, Mikaela is drawn to stories that give an authentic voice and presence to underrepresented groups on screen, particularly from the Asian diaspora perspective.

Mikaela was selected for the Queensland round of the AFTRS Talent Camp Development Program (2019) and the Screenworks ‘Inside an Online Writer’s Room’ with Peter Mattessi (2020).

Working with screenwriter Tanya Modini, the duo were selected as finalists in the Screen Queensland + Stan Premium Drama Development Fund (2020) and Mikaela’s factual series concept was selected for the finals of the Screen Queensland ABC Factual Initiative (2020).
