Writer Biography - Jaimy Rose Gardner

Jaimy is an award-winning screenwriter from Las Vegas, NV. She graduated from Pepperdine University with a BA in Theatre Arts and an emphasis in Communications. She is a professionally-trained dancer, having attended schools such as Juilliard, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and the Washington Ballet in D.C. In addition to working in administration for the last five years, Jaimy has also served as a dance instructor for close to ten years in a variety of genres -- including tap, jazz, ballet, and musical theatre -- for students of all ages.

For many years, Jaimy grew increasingly discouraged and frustrated, both as an actress and as a lover of films and television, with her inability to find content that she connected with on every level – mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. She did not care for content that just tickled people's ears and eyes or tried to shove a particular opinion down their throat. She liked content that made her feel like she was a part of something, that wrapped its fingers around her heart and invited her on an emotional journey that un-made and then remade her. She loved stories that made audiences think and allowed them to simultaneously endure the deepest sorrows alongside the greatest joys. With rare exceptions, this kind of content proved harder to find than she ever imagined. She expressed this frustration to a colleague one day prior to their theatre company’s trip to Edinburgh, Scotland to perform in the 2018 Fringe Festival, and he said something that has stuck with her to this day – “Stop complaining and start creating.” In April of 2021, she finally committed to take on that challenge and is now actively creating and producing the type of content she longs to see and be a part of.
