Being captured by the creative possibilities with video production in the early 90’s after receiving her first camera and non-linear editing suite, Zara has built on years of industry experience to refine her passion for story-telling, educating and advocating through the use of film.
Zara was motivated to return to study and complete her Diploma of Community Services in 2017 after creating films for many NFP organisations and individuals with life stories that compelled her to learn more about how her skills can assist marginalised and disadvantaged people in the community.
Zara now delivers on her passion to improve the lives of others by sharing her time between managing her business Voicebox Films, working as a Welfare Worker supporting people with addiction, co-facilitator of an LGBTIQ advocacy and networking group Rural Rainbows and the Director of a transgender social support group Trans and Gender Diverse Bendigo and Beyond.
Zara uses she/her pronouns, is a proud parent of two wonderful adolescents and loves spending time with friends, dancing and op-shopping. Zara’s happy place is upside down on a pole, with toes pointed in a striking pose during a pole dancing routine.
