Now that you know what I’m doing at Nerdy Diva, here’s a little bit about who I am.
I’m a St. Louis born and raised writer and award-winning filmmaker with film and television credits from projects on cable and streaming platforms such as Netflix, Oxygen, Comedy Central, MTV, Prime Video and more.
My latest work is a celebrated short doc called Black Girl, Bleu, which was born from my personal challenges with mental health after the unexpected passing of my favorite uncle.
In 2020, I launched 11 Stars Studios, a film, television, digital and streaming production company focused on telling stories where African American women and girls exist as full human beings on screen and feel seen, heard, loved, and affirmed beyond the screen.
From documentaries to digital series' and narrative films, my mission is to use intimate and authentic storytelling to explore the truth, magic, and beauty of being human. My dream is to continue telling stories and creating content that cultivates empathy, encourages vulnerability, and moves people to confront their biases.
An enthusiastic student of life, I have an MA in media communications from Webster University as well as a BA in communication with a film studies certificate from St. Louis University. To learn more about me, visit shareesilerio.com.
