Lianne is a writer, director, and experience designer. Her work in film, theatre, event production, and prose invokes a more expansive sense of possibility through its flirtation with the surreal. Her work, which addresses climate change, cognitive liberty, and gender justice, is epistemologically promiscuous, spiritually ergonomic, and sensorially immersive. In less pretentious terms, it enchants the senses, tickles the intellect, and speaks to the soul. 


Professionally, Lianne was a Drama League Director's Fellow and has worked at Berkeley Rep, A.C.T., Yale Repertory Theater, and the Hangar Theater. She was also a creative consultant for the producers of Sleep No More, Project Coordinator at the Foundation for Contemporary Art in Accra, Ghana, and Program Director at Arte Hacía la Vida in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she lived and worked as a theater director for several years. She studied directing at Yale University, painting at Rhode Island School of Design, and Immersive Storytelling & Film at California Institute of the Arts. She also has certificates in screenwriting and directing from Sundance. Lianne is currently in post-production on a documentary about the Shanghai Jews and a narrative short about creativity and grief.


Curiosity is her cartographer, humor is her guru, mystery is her muse.
