Hi there. I'm Lily- a screenwriter and director. Originally trained at New York’s Jacob Burns Media Arts Lab, I began directing at age 14.

I'm a proud graduate from the film production program at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, where I directed several short films including the award-winning sci-fi short The Fringes.

I'm currently in post-production on my newest narrative short film,

The Biographer's Wife. I'm also a writer, with some screenplays under my belt and others in the works. I've also been commissioned as a script doctor and for rewrites.

In addition to narrative directing, I direct in the world of documentaries and commercial/branded content. I've directed for companies ranging from fashion startups like Original Stitch to established tech companies like Oblong Industries.

When I'm not writing or directing, I work as an Assistant Director and Production Coordinator on indie shorts and features, documentaries, commercials, and music videos, and I also work as a documentary editor.

As an avid fan of science fiction and of history, in my work I strive to combine these passions to create politically-minded science and speculative fiction as well as historical and wartime films.
