Kayden Phoenix is a queer Chicana writer and director from Boyle Heights, California. Upon entering the industry, she noticed the character generalizations. In response, she became a huge advocate for diversity both in front and behind the camera.    


Kayden created the Chicana Directors Initiative to support Latina directors and Latina directors of photography in successfully immersing into sustainable careers in the entertainment industry with fair representation and equal pay. She was a recipient of Panavision’s New Filmmaker’s program and a semi-finalist in the first Universal Animation Writer's program.


She is credited with creating the first Latina superhero team in comic book history with her graphic novel, "A LA BRAVA."
