Jaya Beach-Robertson - Creator & Writer

Jaya grew up as the lanky weird kid with the strange accent and so has become accustomed to, and even fond of, being the outsider. Born and raised in the perpetually overcast Seattle, Jaya moved with her family to Nelson, New Zealand - a small isolated town full of stoners, old people, and badly disguised racism. Moving at an awkward cusp-y age meant she retained the dregs of her west coast drawl which, morphed with the stiff upper lipped Kiwi twang, resulted in a jarring hybrid of the two, further exacerbating the outsider effect.

Jaya has had her fair share of TVC's. Some may say she is a TVC hua. The most notable being Instant Kiwi's Kitten's and Air New Zealand's Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made.

Jaya has studied the Meisner technique with Michael Saccente since 2013.

In 2017 she played Jiro in the Netflix co-production, The New Legend of Monkey. Other television credits include Dear Murderer and Shortland Street.

In 2018, Jaya's first born child, PSUSY, won the award for best web episodes at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

She is also a talented voice performer, working on projects like Muk Puddy's Quimbo's Quest and Path of Exile, a MMO RPG by Grinding Gears, as Lilly Roth.
