Lena was born in Buryatia, spent her childhood around Lake Baikal, and graduated from ballet school. She went on to live and study marketing in Germany, but eventually succumbed to the pull of the creative field and abruptly pivoted into directing. Lena is a graduate of the Wordshop Academy, specialising in Directing and Short Formats.
Now Lena shoots music videos, fashion films and advertising. She eagerly takes on choreographing and writing creative pieces. Lena says that being a director combines her two biggest passions – coming up with ideas and dancing!
