J.L. Reed (he/him/his) is originally from Winston Salem, NC. He is an educator, actor, voice-over artist, and director currently residing in Atlanta, GA. For the past two years, his artistic focus has been writing. J.L.’s pursuit of professional writing is fuelled, in part, by a burning desire to see Black queer characters centered in all kinds of stories, across all mediums, especially television and film. He’s particularly interested in sci-fi and comedy. J.L. holds a BA in Theatre and an MFA in Theatre Performance.
