Shakira Pressley is a screenwriter, producer, and actress with a specialty in and love for all things animated. With a bachelor’s degree in digital filmmaking and video, she has written for such television shows as “Keller Nation” and Cartoon Network’s “Craig of the Creek.” In addition to TV work, she has also worked on CMF at Cannes’ award-winning short films like “4H,” “Margaret Mage,” and “Rainbow Roller Rink.”
Like most writers in Hollywood, when she isn’t creating storylines and plot twists, she’s acting or providing voice talent to get her work out to audiences. As she notes on her website, she’s “just a person attempting to do adult things so that I can have a job that allows me to do kid things.”
