Hi, I’m Courtney Kocak. I'm a many-splendored writer who writes everything from comedy scripts with my writing partner Sofiya Alexandra to tearjerker essays – and everything in between. In addition, I co-host the Reality Bytes podcast with Sofiya and our friend, comedian Dave Rankin.

I recently had essays published in The Washington Post's Solo-ish column and The Los Angeles Times's L.A. Affairs column. I'm a sex writer for Greatist and a health and fitness contributor to Hint's blog The Quench. Other bylines include Bustle, where I was a regular lifestyle contributor, Healthline, xoJane, LADYGUNN, and many others.

You can watch my words (& Sofiya's) in action on the Emmy-winning animated series Danger & Eggs, voiced by SNL's Aidy Bryant, available on Amazon Prime. We also wrote a national Get Out the Vote commercial for the House Majority PAC, starring Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Melissa Fumero and Stephanie Beatriz, which aired prior to the election. We're currently developing a scripted anthology series called Blank Seeking Blank – to see a sneak peek, click here and here.

I grew up in Minnesota. I graduated from Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri with my BFA in theatre/acting. I now live in Los Angeles. I completed UCLA's graduate-level Professional Program in Screenwriting in 2012 and Second City's online satire writing program in 2018.

Would you like to hire me? Or interview me on your podcast? Or send me swimsuit swag? Email me! I love writing and podcasting almost as much as I love 'gramming myself in bikinis... & that's A LOT.
