Erin Lunsford (aka Ex Nihilo) is a filmmaker and artist with experience in directing, producing, production design, and fine arts and is currently working as a visual artist and custom tattooist while simultaneously freelancing as a film and media creator. Born and raised in Saudi Arabia, Lunsford has lived across the globe before coming to Los Angeles to attend USC via academic grants and scholarships. In 2016 Lunsford graduated from USC with a B.A. in Film Production, B.A. in Fine Arts, and media Arabic language certification.

It is important to Lunsford that art and expression are accessible to creators and community and wishes to help support anyone who seeks to create and expand the global spectrum of cultural understanding through diverse and constantly developing mediums.
