Hey there, welcome. Thanks for checking out my films!

I'm Lauren. I grew up in Tampa, Florida where I made my first movie, about a girl who falls in love with a computer. My tastes haven't changed much since.  My films often explore political ideas through a fantastical lens and they have played Locarno, BAMCinematek, Viennale, SXSW, Hot Springs Doc Fest, CinemaEast, and more. I'm a recipient of an Austin Film Society Grant and participated in their Artist Intensive with a feature script. I have an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin where I also taught. I'm in-development on my first feature film, A PROPER WAY TO GO, as well as several other projects including music videos, short films and a personal essay.

I currently reside in LA with my weiner dog Gus, and I direct everything from commercials to web series - reach out for collaborations!
