Hey there! I’m Lauren.
An actor, director and producer currently based in Austin, TX… until the next pitstop. Proud LGBTQ+ actor, live music fanatic and drag enthusiast. I’m extremely passionate about advocating for LGBTQ+ youth and constantly trying to support OutYouth and The Trevor Project.
In real life, I’m happy, positive and sassy, but my characters are usually the ones with the brooding past and deep secrets who have a lingering sadness in their eyes.
I’ve worked on several feature films, shorts, commercials and music videos all over the southeast, and studied with the Stella Adler Art of Acting Studio, some reputable on-camera coaches in the Southeast, including an amazing Sci-Fi specific class with Erica S. Bream, and currently at Masters of Self-Taping with Jordan Woods-Robinson.
While acting is my primary forte, I sometimes step on the other side of the lens. I’ve produced and directed four films in the last three years, earning a Best Female Director award, Audience Choice Award, Best Short, Best of Year Showcase and several nominations for my recent films, “Positive” and “Dawn.”
My latest endeavor has been creating a comedic series, Making It, about a green actor learning how to navigate the industry as a newbie, making a lot of mistakes veteran actors are familiar with and have conquered. The series was successfully crowdfunded in one week and is set to release late 2022.
When not filming, I love to travel, attend music festivals, go hiking or rock climbing, and perpetually hope to be a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race someday.
