Filmmaker, photographer, and educator, Lucy spent about 3 years living and volunteering at an orphanage in Bosnia-Herzegovina. It was during that time that she found herself in the midst of unique stories as she came to know the wise individuals behind those journeys. That wisdom, paired with a deep appreciation for the power of the image, inspired Lucy to pursue a career in filmmaking. Lucy obtained her Master of Fine Arts in Film and TV Production from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, and she continues to produce and direct short documentary films. She is honored to bring her passions together by seeking to instill in young people the importance of telling their stories, while providing them the skills necessary to create digital content. Through her work at Outside the Lens she strives to not only bring cameras to classrooms throughout in San Diego, but to the places and spaces that need them most. From Syrian refugee camps in Jordan, to small rural villages in Bosnia-Herzegovina, she is passionate about giving youth the opportunity to tell their story.
