A ginger who hails from Texas, Lynnsey Ooten is a New York based director, actor, and filmmaker. She has an untamed passion for creating stories that unearth the dangers and delights of the human experience through whimsy, curiosity, and a ferocious sense of play.

The series made a highly successful run of the domestic and international festival circuit and is currently available to stream on The Roku Channel.
Recent directing projects include IN THE WORLD OF SOUNDS (narrative podcast), ESCAPE (NYC Fringe), and SHREW (Tale Told/Oppressed in Heels).
