Born in post-apartheid South Africa, raised in Italy, Lauren graduated from UCLA’s prestigious graduate directing program in 2014. Before she left school, she had joined the DGA, having directed second unit on 'Plush', a Catherine Hardwicke ('Thirteen', 'Twilight') feature.
Lauren followed this up with 'City Bus', starring Ahna O’Reilly ('The Help'). Executive produced by James Franco’s Rabbit Bandini as an initiative to help emerging filmmakers, 'City Bus' won Lauren the best director award at the 2017 IFS Festival and best narrative short at the Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival. It was also runner up in the media category of the Script Pipeline First Look contest.
Subsequent projects include 'His 'N' Hers', a first-person POV, interactive video starring celebrity photographer Tyler Shields, and 'Please Don't Come Back From The Moon', James Franco's award-winning feature, which Lauren produced.
Recently, her first-person POV short 'The New Kid' won gold at the California regional ADDYs, while her latest short 'Shoot For The Moon' will premiere at TIFF Kids 2018.
In addition to the film awards listed on her IMDB page, Lauren was a finalist and overall winner respectively in the 2017 Creative World Awards and Write Room screenwriting contests.
