What She Said Team
JENNY LESTER - Writer/Producer/Playing "Sam"

Jenny spent a year and a half working bi-coastally as a Writer’s Assistant for playwright, author, and screenwriter Steven Sater (Broadway’s Spring Awakening) before relocating to New York full time. She tried her hand at that backstage life, ASM’ing for BEDLAM’s Pygmalion, before giving Florida a whirl, starring in Bad Jews at American Stage. With Shallow Graves, Jenny wrote, produced, and starred in the spec pilot Platonics. A proud BFA Musical Theatre graduate from Point Park University, she’s directed and acted in a lot of plays you can read about on www.jennyluisalester.com.

AMY NORTHUP - Director
Amy grew up in the woods with Smoky the Bear for a father. (Not really, but her dad is a National Park Ranger and she did grow up in National Parks all over the country.) When she’s not pitching tents or casually handling a bow and arrow, she resides in New York where she wears a lot of hats. Actress, Director, Associate Artistic Director of Animus Theatre Company (www.animustheatre.org), Podcaster, and Activist are among her favorite. Amy is a facilitator with OutSmart NYC, a collective of activists, practitioners, and nightlife professionals dedicated to ending sexual violence in nightlife. www.amynorthup.com for all things art and acting related, and @supnorthup on insta for equal parts thirst traps and intersectional rants.
ALEXA WOLF - Director of Photography
If Alexa didn't love shooting movies so much, she would live on a farm in New Zealand with too many horses, hiking every day and sleeping under the stars. Instead, she lives in starless New York City where she’s pursuing her dream of taking your picture 23.98 times a second. A Northern California native, she moved to New York to attend Bard College, from which she received a B.A. in Film and Electronic Arts. In 2018 she shot "Candace" a narrative short that went on to win Best Picture in the Emerging Filmmakers Showcase at Cannes. Other recent projects include; a new feature length thriller set on Fire Island, and the Summer & Fall season campaigns for LOFT.
