My name is Erin Lee Carr and I am a documentary filmmaker. Most recently, I am the Director of “Thought Crimes” an HBO Documentary Films feature that is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival and airing in Spring 2015.

Before that I covered the vast intersection between science and technology for Vice Media, specifically their science vertical Motherboard. I also worked as a producer at The Verge.

I was profiled in Elle and my work was gotten picked up in The Atlantic, CNN, the Huffington Post, the NY Observer, Time, the NYTime’s Bits Blog, XOJane, Smithsonian Magazine, Popular Science, World Star Hip Hop, Gizmodo, and the front page of Youtube as well as many others.

My produced content has amassed over 20 million views worldwide.

I am one of the most mediated people I know with an external hard drive with gigabytes of film, music, and text. My internal hard drive, my brain, is in a nascent state and seeking new experience and lessons from the likes of you. I am a low-maintenance, high-effort person who counterintuits as a matter of course.

I was born in the lovely and shivery Minnesota and I have moved all over the country since I was a kid. Highlights included Wisconsin, Washington D.C. and the Czech Republic. Some not so highlighted times: London and New Jersey. I am a proud badger.

But, and this is important, I always walk on the sunny side of the street.
