More on Lauren:
Lauren has led actors to bookings in national commercials, as well as series regular and contract roles, lead and supporting roles, and recurring and guest star roles, both in television and film.

From NYC, Lauren planted roots in LA to further share her years of experience in front of and behind the camera. She started out as an actor and comes from an elite lineage of teachers. Having studied acting extensively with Karen Ludwig, she eventually became her leading student. Karen was the key to Uta Hagen.

Lauren possesses a strong insight into the casting process. She has done a good deal of casting, including casting Oscar winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) in one of his first lead roles in Ten Benny. She has also been involved in the casting of several movies with the talents of Simon Baker (The Mentalist), Lauryn Hill (singer), Jesse Martin (Law and Order), Frank Vincent (Sopranos) and more.

These experiences working with seasoned and (at the time) undiscovered Oscar winners, taught her so much about the commitment it takes to get noticed in this competitive field. She applied this knowledge when taking on her own projects. In addition to directing many theater productions and independent films, she also has a feature film, several award-winning short films and an entire eleven-episode webseries under her belt. In her projects, she was able to present close to a hundred of her students in front of and behind the camera. Lauren once had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Danny Nucci (Titanic) in Italian American Reconciliation.
