Olivia Lee is a filmmaker based in Los Angeles, California & Portland, Oregon.  She received her Bachelor's degree in Film and Communications from Portland State University in June of 2023.

Olivia has experience in many avenues of multimedia creation from film production to branded media to food journalism. Currently, she works as a freelance post-production editor and videographer, specializing in branded media. Brooks Running, Street Disco, and Toyota are just some of the clients she has had the privilege to work with. Her last role was as an associate producer at North Shore Productions, an Emmy-award winning documentary production studio in Portland, Oregon.  With regards to on-set film experience, Olivia has worked as a production assistant on several film sets— commercial and narrative. She also has held multiple PR and social media related jobs in past, giving her over 5+ years of experience in the digital media world.  Olivia's directorial debut was on the Portland State University short film Harper's World (2021), which earned distinct recognition on the film festival circuit. Since then, she has written, directed, and produced several other short form narrative, documentary, and branded media projects. Most recently, she wrote and directed Blow Me (2023), a micro-short film that touches on themes of feminine rage. Her Honors Thesis film, It's Not The Same Anymore (in-progress) centers on a queer coming-of-age narrative.

Apart from film, Olivia finds herself infatuated with the culinary world, having worked as a line cook at Toki, and now a freelance writer for Eater Portland (Vox Media). She finds immense joy when discovering untapped food spots,  in which she then shares on her not-so-secret food account. You'll have to do a little digging to find it though.

All in all, Olivia's creative pursuits are deeply driven by her passion for storytelling and collaboration. She is a seeker of stories, experiences, and of life. She is also a Virgo :)
