Born and raised in Toronto, Canada – Amanda started making movies in her backyard when she was 10 years old. After graduating film school in Toronto in 2011, she started out writing & directing self-funded short films, music videos, and commercials. One of her short films “Mitten” earned her international attention and lead to her start in television directing special “night mare” and “murder vision” units for TV series like Netflix’s Hemlock Grove and Fox’s Minority Report .
She’s since gone on to direct multiple episodes of Freeform’s Shadowhunters, Siren, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, Hulu’s Light as a feather, CW’s Nancy Drew, an Untitled new Marvel series for Hulu, as well as directing upcoming episodes of the CW’s the 100 and DC’s Doom Patrol. Amanda recently moved to LA in March of 2019 and currently has two feature films in development.
