Lainey Wood is an artist, writer, filmmaker, and language enthusiast from Charlottesville, VA. Her work roams the borderlands between genres, cultures, mediums, and ways of interpreting the world, which may explain why she is currently earning her Masters in multilingualism and multiculturalism at the University of Luxembourg. She graduated from the University of Southern California with degrees in Film Production and Spanish. She tweets sporadically @lwood5010.
