Jenna is a writer with a life-long passion for genre. She wrote her first fantasy short story when she was 6, and attempted her first novel when she was 13 (also fantasy, and horrifically derivative!). In 2016 Jenna’s first real, non-derivative novel, an historical YA titled Tattoo, was published and has gone on to become a hot fan favourite amongst teens and adults alike.
Since 2015 Jenna has been primarily focused on screenwriting and filmmaking. In 2021 Jenna won the Trackingb screenwriting competition with her sci-fi feature Wayworn, and as a result signed with manager Ken Freimann at Circle of Confusion in the US.
In 2020 Jenna released the retro sci-fi web series 2121, for which she wrote and produced all 7 episodes. The series stars TV legend Gary Sweet, was funded by Screen Australia’s online fund, and has over 1 million views online. In the same year, Jenna was funded by the ABC to develop a dark comedy animation series.
She has written and produced 6 short films, which have screened at numerous international festivals, including the award-winning, time-bending short Air. She also produced the sci-fi comedy feature film Nova Star (2021) with stalwart indie director Daniel Armstrong.
In 2018, the book trailer she produced for her novel Tattoo was nominated for a prestigious Golden Trailer award in LA, alongside such companies as Netflix and HBO.
Also an experienced marketer and creative director, Jenna has designed digital campaigns for numerous industries, with a focus on millennial audiences and interactive media.
She has produced a variety of commercial and brand collaboration projects, including the documentary series Masters at Work which premiered on Virgin Australia in 2018, and projects for luxury French fashion house Hermes Paris.
