Lili has a scientific and design background, with an MSc in Applied Mathematics and an MA in Fashion Design (Royal College of Art). Before launching GN3RA, she worked with fashion, gaming and entertainment businesses to explore self-expression in the digital space (LNCC, Avakin Life, Mahla Clothing), while developing XR projects on immersive creativity as artist in residence at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (2021) and at the NFT Gallery London (2022).

Seeing first hand how students, entering the digital space for the first time, struggled with tackling the steep technical learning curve of digital content creation software, together with her studio experience assisting businesses in the digital, inspired her to develop GN3RA.
