Known for her ferocious wit, comedic timing and dry delivery, Florence collaborates with advertising teams to write, direct and occasionally act in comic content and commercials.
Florence is the creator of the online sketch comedy Blind Pilot, and has collaborated with Nick Boshier (“Bondi Hipsters”, “Beached Az”) on numerous projects, including the 2014 Emmy award winning Australian comedy, “7DaysLater” for ABC2.
Having obsessed over British comedy from pretty much the womb, Florence began her career writing amusing copy and directing radio ads for TBWA advertising in London, Johannesburg and Auckland.
Leaving full time copywriting behind and having been fired from several cafes, Flo moved into television and film. She has since worked in almost every film production role on offer, from stills photographer to production assistant to actor.
Flo’s first writer/ director short film reached the finals of the Auckland 48 Hour film Fest in 2006. And her most recent film “Things Are Going Really Well” was selected for the LA Comedy Festival, Sweden’s Norrkoping Film Festival and the Melbourne International Film Festival, where she attended the 2015 Accelerator Program.
Florence was nominated for Best Emerging Talent at the 2016 CAANZ Axis Awards.
