In 2017 She made The Silent Forest, a four part series on environmental crime and community-fight back in South East Asia, a co-production with the BBC World Service, which went out to 40 million listeners.
Her work has been played on radio stations in Europe, and performed live on stage at the Studio, Sydney Opera House.
