Untethered writer and director, Bianca Malcolm, hails from St. Louis, Missouri, the murder capital of the U.S. The daughter of average urbanites, she found escape from the crushing violence of early-90’s America through the horror films of Wes Craven and John Carpenter, which inspired her to become a rule-breaking screenwriter. To this end, she earned four degrees, including a Ph.D. in Epidemiology, then took a slave-job as a Statistician at the CDC to repay monumental student loans. Bianca took a hard left into hungry artist territory, and broke her mother’s heart, when she decided that tracking disease wasn’t as sexy as the movies told her it was. Now she uses her Ph.D. degree to prop up her laptop as she pens her own version of the truth and creates cinematic stories of the macabre, fanciful, and adventurous for the big and small screens. She has won numerous awards and recognition, including placing twice in the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards and winning a coveted internship in the Grey’s Anatomy Writers’ Room.
