Lauren grew up in Tampa, Florida where they made their first movie, about a girl who falls in love with a computer. Their tastes haven't changed much since. Lauren’s films often explore political and philosophical ideas through character based and fantastical lenses. They have played Locarno, BAMCinematek, Viennale, SXSW, Hot Springs Doc Fest, CinemaEast, and more. Lauren is a recipient of an Austin Film Society Grant and participated in their Artist Intensive with a feature script. Lauren has an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin where they also taught. Lauren is in-development on their first feature film, as well as several other projects including music videos, short films and TV projects.
Lauren currently resides in LA with their weiner dog Gus, and directs everything from commercials to web series - reach out for collaborations!
