Ashlei Shyne, is a comedy writer, actress, and filmmaker hailing from Dayton, Ohio. She's an LA-based writer who loves writing character-driven comedies with BIPOC & LGBTQ+ leads. She has studied at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade, IO West and Second City LA. During her time performing improv, she noticed an insufficient amount of LGBTQ+ writers and performers not being represented within the comedy community. From that awareness, Ashlei created Rainbow Bright Comedy a BIPOC LGBTQ+ improv troupe. As a filmmaker, she's best known for her short film Bifocal, and web series #TMI. #TMI follows Aaliyah Jones, a bisexual woman who struggles to find love, acceptance and career success while living in Los Angeles. As a writer, her priorities are to use her intersectionalities through storytelling to shines a light on stories and worlds that haven’t been told.
