Dayna Noffke grew up as the clumsy kid in the back brace who spent too much time in the hospital. Thankfully, there were movies and television to entertain her. 

She immersed herself in the world of terrifying tales and slapstick comedies alike, developing the wicked sense of gallows humor that would later inform her writing and film work.

​As an adult, she broken-boned her way through boxing and a short roller derby career and perfected the art of traveling on the cheap, gathering friends and stories along the way.

​Dayna is especially drawn to tales of survival, and of outsiders finding their place in the world. Her favorite projects exist at the intersection of the beautiful and the horrific. 

In her free time, you’ll find Dayna  studying Japanese language, skating, putting together monster models, decorating her Addams Family-themed living room, or cuddling her freshest batch of foster kittens.
