About me

KAYLEE BIRD was born and raised in Key West, Florida. Flung into the renegade scenes of New York City, she attended New York University, majoring in Film and Television Production, while specializing in Producing and Business. Post-grad, Ms. Bird has volunteered seasonally for the Tribeca Film Festival since 2011. Following, she worked for the Production Management Team for MTV’s long-running, Emmy Award-winning series, MADE in 2012. Ms. Bird began designing Festival Press Kits for feature documentaries shortly after working for MTV Networks. Most recently, Ms. Bird has been getting in touch with her roots in England and Ireland. While in Ireland, she’s had the opportunity to assist a Director on a number of music videos. She hopes to continue to work on film in Ireland and England in the near future. Furthermore, at present, Ms. Bird is presently pursuing higher education, and is working on developing her own boutique production company, Three Bird Pictures.
