Julienne Jones (she/her)
Julienne Jones is a true Gemini in the sense that she refuses to commit to just one title, is constantly working on a million projects, and doesn’t believe in astrology. Some of her current projects include editing a documentary about her father, developing a short film where New York IS NOT a character, and writing a book of poetry that is currently scattered in notes across her phone, email drafts, and little bits of paper in her tote. As an artist, Julienne loves pushing limits and questioning norms, and she is so grateful to be able to do just that with the cast and crew of WIFEY.
