Gayle Kirschenbaum is an Emmy award-winning filmmaker, television producer, personality and motivational speaker living in New York City. She is the creator and star of the documentary My Nose, a film festival favorite, showing worldwide. The film has received rave reviews from the press, including the Washington Post -- “dazzling self-confidence” and The Jewish Week -- “hilarious romp!”
My Nose is based on Gayle’s experience with her mother who has insisted since she was fifteen that her daughter get a nose job. Gayle and her mother visit various plastic surgeons in a hilarious adventure where the only augmentation is in the personal relationship between mother and daughter.
Encouraged by an overwhelming audience response, Gayle has turned the film's lessons into a humorous and insightful seminar, featuring "The Seven Healing Tools" for dealing with difficult people.
Gayle has also created the following reality shows airing on TLC and Discovery Health: Our Little Life; Little People: Big Pregnancy; Little Parents: First Baby; Dwarf Family Adoption and I'm Pregnant and Having a Dwarf.
When she is not creating television shows or inspiring others with her seminars, Gayle is the host and creator of the video podcast series, On The Trail With Gayle, now widely distributed online.
She is also the creator and star of the critically acclaimed film, A Dog’s Life: A Dogamentary which premiered on HBO. It's a wacky and poignant documentary about the healing bond between dogs and humans as told through Gayle's story with her Shih Tzu.
Another of Gayle's projects with HBO, Judgement Day: Should The Guilty Go Free, aired as part of America Undercover series.
