About Lisa


As of 2018, I have made five feature films, TV movies, crime series, several mini-series, theatre productions, short films and commercials. I tell stories about characters. Often I find my heroes in the midst of a crisis. It might be the soldier returning home, the recent widower, the housewife left behind by her husband, the stripper losing her mother, or the alcoholic facing his last days on earth. I search for stories that bring us closer to who we really are and who we want to be. I love stories that will take you from smiles to tears and back again. I love a good laugh in the midst of a tragedy. I love working with actors, searching for the complexity of humanity. I like endings that give us hope.  More ›
