KristenV. Carter Biography

Kristen V. Carter is a screenwriter, television producer, and educator from Newark, New Jersey. She has produced for a variety of cable television’s top programs including Lifetime’s Project Runway, MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, and OWN/Discovery Health’s docu-­‐series My Mom is Obsessed. In addition, Kristen has served as a speech writer for Viacom executives, including BET’s CEO Debra Lee.

Kristen has a deep-­‐rooted passion for entrepreneurship and content creation. In 2007, she founded JazziDreamer Entertainment LLC, a multimedia company specializing in writing, production, and consultation services. Through the company, she wrote and directed a six-­‐episode web series entitled Sellout (2010), a story of an Ivy League graduate’s transition back to the inner-­‐city after his mother’s death.

Since that time, Kristen has written three feature length screenplays and continues to create scripted and non-­‐scripted projects for TV, web, and film including the dramatic short First Date (2012), which is currently on the film festival circuit. First Date is an official selection of the San Diego Black Film Festival, California International Shorts Festival, Garden State Film Festival, and the REEL Ladies Media Showcase.

Kristen has won many awards for her professional and social achievements, including the Goldman Sachs Institute for Entrepreneurial Thinking National First Place Prize, the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship Award for Most Civic Minded Business, and the New York Women in Communications Scholarship. Most recently, Kristen took part in the 2011 Cosby Screenwriting Fellowship.

Whether it’s through screen or stage, her ultimate goal is to inspire the world through edutainment!
