Australian born Kim moved to London to study before taking up a role as Art Director at the highly acclaimed advertising agency Mother. After rising through the company she left to pursue her passion of film directing. Since making the jump Kim has become a coveted and celebrated director, known for her brilliantly crafted, witty and thoughtful style. Recent work includes her hugely successful ‘This Girl Can’ campaign for Sport England and the headline grabbing ‘Man on the Moon’ Christmas commercial for John Lewis.
