Stories have always fascinated Kirsten Ruško. When she was three, her mother bought her a book of Greek mythology, and that set her on a path to explore stories in
every way possible. She began by studying literature and medieval studies at the University of British Columbia, then at Oxford University before becoming a high
school English, creative writing, and philosophy teacher. It was through teaching that Kirsten came to writing screenplays. Teaching is a crazy profession filled with
characters and adventures that seem almost, but not quite, unbelievable, and it is those types of stories that Kirsten most wants to tell.
She has produced five films (Sincerely, Bette; Me, too; Never Too Late; Mrs. Rosa’s European Adventure; and Marshall and Zeb) two of which—Me, too and Sincerely, Bette—she wrote. Her production company, Mouthy Bitch Productions, also produces the podcasts Showbiz: Amateur Adventures in Film and Arrest Stories and the band Tiny Milkshakes. When she isn’t writing, producing, or teaching, Kirsten is a true Vancouverite.
She spends as much time outside as she can, skiing, hiking, and generally exploring the natural beauty that Vancouver has to offer.
