Debra is Partner & Head of Production at Groundglass Productions in Cape Town. With close to 20 years of experience in production, she has worked with some of the biggest brands, Directors and Agencies worldwide.

Debs (as she is more commonly known) swims in the cold Atlantic sea on most days, loves music and in her earlier years dabbled in some DJ’ing. She is about to embark on a new juice and sandwich bar venture in Cape Town (as a side project with EP @ Groundglass, Janette De Villiers) and is a camping enthusiast!

Debra studied film and television at Natal Technikon and began her career in the industry on-set and in the edit suite. After a stint in London she moved to Cape Town and joined Groundglass in the Production department where has been instrumental in building the company to where it is today.

Debra is involved in both Director & Service production work, she feels this gives her a hugely advantageous overview of the industry as a whole.

Groundglass has been awarded numerous awards at Cannes, the Loeries, Ciclope, and the YDA awards.
