Emily Ullrich is a writer, filmmaker, occasional stand-up comedian, and all-around artist and creative.
She has had a lifelong engrossment with gender, relationships, sex, and sexuality. In her world travels (which include living in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, among other places) she has always made it a point to question natives of each region about their sexual and relationship conflicts and triumphs. In fact, while in Nairobi, Emily taught “Sex and Sexuality” to young women at Boxgirls (an NGO that teaches girls and women to box for self-defense and self-esteem).
In addition, Emily put herself through college as a bartender, some of those years she bartended at a gay bar. She learned valuable lessons about people’s relationships and sexuality as an observer. Those who know Emily the best will often refer to her as the one who will ask the questions that everyone wants to know, but no one will ask.
She has read and researched the topics of sex, sexuality, and relationships at length, and has always been the “go-to’ for friends, whenever they have had sexual or relationship issues. As a student of life, and serial monogamist, she is a self-proclaimed sex and relationship guru. Her own life experiences and relationships have always been subject to her writing, stand-up comedy, and filmmaking. As a former professor, Emily has a natural desire to educate and inform, so as she learns about her subjects of interest, she hopes to enlighten others through her writing.
Emily has a Master's Degree from Antioch University in Writing, Acting, and Directing for Stage and Screen, and she got her BFA in Film and Television from Savannah College of Art and Design.
