(she/her) Guest/Teaching Artist
Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, Lagueria Davis grew up in a household where her dreams had to be practical, which is how she found herself at the University of Oklahoma double majoring in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Three years and three internships later, her need to create consumed her, and she left the engineering program and landed in the School of Art. After graduating with a BFA in Media Art, she worked a myriad of what she calls "character building" jobs. She was working as a Domestic Violence Shelter Manager when she was offered her first industry job as an Office PA on a Terence Malick film. She left the shelter and worked in production until landing a Writers PA position on season two of The L Word: Generation Q with Showrunner Marja-Lewis Ryan. After wrapping The L Word, she was selected to participate in the Mentorship Matters Program where her mentor was Niceole Levy. Lagueria is currently directing her first feature documentary, Black Barbie: A Documentary, which is a set for a 2023 release. As a queer, INFJ aquarian, born in the year of the horse, she is as unique as her name.
