Kirby Marshall-Collins

Writer / Director

Los Angeles, CA, USA


Born in Chicago, raised in the East Bay Area, Kirby is an LA-based writer/director with a knack for dialogue and somehow relating everything back to a Disney movie. She owes her love of writing to the Junie B. Jones books, her first script to “High School Musical,” and her true beginnings to the lack of roles available as a black teen who didn’t want to just play somebody’s girlfriend. Her writing’s driven by a need for more in terms of dynamic, unapologetic storytelling for black girls, women of color, and people of the LGBTQ+ community. You can find her intensely speculating and dissecting TV on all forms of social media (@kirbysaid).
