Chloe practiced as an artist for ten years before moving towards documentary. In 2001 she got a job in a local primary school, which lead to a decade of working on education projects around the country, inspiring disaffected youth to use documentary as a tool for change in their own lives. Out of her work as an educator, she made my first feature doc, Mario and Nini in 2008. Subsequent films include Death of a Hedgefund Salesman 2011, and The Do Gooders, 2013.
