Director Biography - Mahalia Butler

I am a Writer, Director and Producer residing primarily in Dallas, TX with ties in Los Angeles as well. Formally trained in Science, Nursing and Medicine, I earned a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree from Vanderbilt University and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. I have many years of professional writing experience. While I have had adequate creative writing exposure, I honed a natural inclination and skill for it many years ago. Armed with a knack and passion for creative writing, management and leadership, upon electing to retire from “Corporate America” in 2016, I decided to delve into the Entertainment Industry and pursue Talent Management and Screenwriting. Producing and Directing Film and Audio Podcasts were quickly added to my professional repertoire.
Since my transition, I have created and produced multiple projects. I am actively adding to my portfolio as a screenwriter, director and producer and diligently work to further establish those talents and skills through self-investment in classes, continuing education and experience. Not only am I interested, but I am also very committed to telling the stories I think should be shared with the world.
I am also a devoted wife and mother of two children. My daughter is a 15 year old Actress (TX/CA based) and my son is a 22 year old college student (Howard University). I have residences in Los Angeles, CA and Arlington, TX and travel as needed for my work. I absolutely enjoy balancing the responsibilities of my "second-act" professional career and my duties as a wife and mother.
