Mairghread Scott is an animation writer and executive producer living in Los Angeles, California. She grew up in Dearborn, Michigan, and attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where she majored in Dramatic Writing (It’s a real degree!) and inhaled a lot of mold running the props library for the theater department.
Mairghread moved to California right after college. After working several uncomfortably cold jobs (California, turn down the AC!), she got her writing start on Transformers: Prime. She later went on to write a number of different cartoons and comic books (see the resume section) fulfilling all her wildest nerdy dreams.
While Mairghread has experience writing for preschool, children’s and adult animation she still has her heart in the action-adventure space and continues to dream of solving all her problems with violence.
In her freetime, Mairghread is the Chair of the Writers’ Craft Committee and sits on the Executive Board of IATSE Local 839, The Animation Guild. She also enjoys reading, cross-stitching, and playing video games on an easier difficulty than she says she does.
