Eve Ash is a Melbourne-based psychologist, motivational speaker, filmmaker, author and entrepreneur.[1] Eve is the CEO and founder of Seven Dimensions and co-created the Cutting Edge Communication Comedy series starring Erin Brown and Emmy-award winning Kim Estes[2][3][4] in the lead role of manager. Eve’s books Rewrite Your Life! and Rewrite Your Relationships! were published by Penguin Books. Her documentary Shadow of Doubt was nominated for best feature documentary at the AACTA Awards. Eve was a Director/ Board Member of the Australian Film Institute[5][6] and Film Victoria (formerly the Victorian Film Corporation).[7]

Early life and education[edit]

Eve Ash was born in 1951 to Polish Jewish Holocaust survivors Feliks and Martha Ash who had emigrated to Melbourne Australia, two years previously with Eve’s older sister, Helen, settling in Murrumbeena. Feliks was in the Janowska concentration camp where he and fellow inmate Leon Wells broke out on November 19, 1943. In Melbourne, he established a successful sports clothing business (Feliks Ash Industries),[8] while Martha’s artistic interests and talent for languages provided a stimulating home environment for her two girls.

Eve attended Kilvington Grammar School, followed by Shelford Girls' Grammar and Mac.Robertson Girls High between 1965-1968. After graduating with a B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in psychology from Monash University and a B.Ed. (Counselling) degree from La Trobe University, Eve worked for the Federal Government as a psychologist and trainer.[9]

Eve subsequently founded her business Seven Dimensions in 1979, with the mission of self-financing and producing comedy business films. She has two children.

In 2008, many years after her parents died, Eve uncovered a family secret that compelled her to “rewrite” her own life. After the results of DNA testing, Eve discovered that she was in fact the love-child of a long-standing clandestine affair. Her biological father was alive and well, working full-time as Australia’s oldest land surveyor. The story forms the basis of Eve’s documentary series Family Secrets - due for release in 2019.[10]
