Marsha has worked in documentary for more than twenty years as a filmmaker, writer, teacher, and programmer. Trained in the USA, she studied filmmaking at San Francisco City College, earned an MA in Documentary Media Studies at San Francisco State, and worked on such award-winning films as "The Day After Trinity," "Dark Circle" and "The Fall of the I-Hotel."

Since migrating to Australia in 1989, Marsha has continued to make programs with peace, women’s rights, and humanitarian themes. Working with the International Women’s Development Agency, she wrote and directed "Lihok Pilipina: Women on the Move," about a micro-credit program in the Philippines. She was researcher for "The Sleep of Reason," a film about the nuclear nightmare and "Conspiracy," an expose of the Hilton bombing incident.
