Lindsay grew up in Rhode Island and then went on to run cross country and track at Harvard. Afterward, she landed in New York City and worked her way to The Times, where she’s become a leading voice on the intersection of gender, culture, and sports, drawing from her own experiences as a sub-elite marathon runner. Since joining Op-Docs in 2011, Lindsay has worked on more than 300 short films, VR, and interactive documentaries that have won three Emmy Awards, two Peabodys, and three Oscar nominations, including a contender for this year’s Academy Award for Best Short Documentary, the Op-Doc “Walk Run Cha-Cha.”
