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

She currently resides in LA with her weiner dog Gus, and directs everything from commercials to web series - reach out for collaborations!
