Lizzie Simon has had a prolific career as a writer and producer for quite some time now.
She was Arts Director of WKCR 89.9FM at Columbia University, Creative Producer at The Flea Theater in Tribeca and co-curator of FIAF’s Crossing the Line Festival. Her book, “Detour,” was published internationally and optioned by HBO and MTV, where she was a consulting producer. At The Wall St Journal, she was a weekly arts columnist and features writer.
She’s currently developing a one-hour TV drama series with George Takei, as well as serving on the board of trustees of United States Artists, a nonprofit which gives fifty $50,000 grants to artists in a range of fields each year.
Lizzie splits her time between New York City, the Hudson Valley and Sonoma County with her husband and three kids. Yes, it’s a lot of splitting and a lot of children.
