Born to a Nigerian father and Ivorian mother, Gladys Edeh has always been a lover of the arts right from the age of 13. While in high school, she participated in theatrical plays as well as choreographed every dance production there was. She became the first official Social Prefect in St. Louis Secondary School in Kano State, Nigeria. Her love affair for film blossomed after watching the movie classic, "The God's Must be Crazy", a movie her dad brought back home after a business trip to India.
In 1995, she moved to the United States and despite her desire to continue her education in Theater Arts, she followed her dad's wishes and pursued a degree in Informations Systems from Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia. After receiving her Bachelors Degree in December, 2000, she continued to pursue her passion for film by becoming active in the Atlanta film community. She started out by volunteering with the Atlanta Film Festival and also worked on several local indie film projects and wore several hats such as a production assistant, an extra, a production manager, boom operator, just to name a few. In 2002 and 2003, she was actively involved with the Nigerian Reunion Committe (now known as the Nigerian Reunion Corporation) and served as the Director and Producer of the video coverage for the annual reunion events that were held both in Miami and Los Angeles, respectively. In 2004, she joined the Video ministry in her home church, Turner Chapel A.M.E Church in Marietta, Georgia where she produces monthly commercials for the Ministry Cast.
In 2008, she produced her very first film, But Mamah, which was part of the Atlanta 48 Hour film project competition. In December 2009, "But Mamah" was an official selection at the ION film festival which took place in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
She later joined the NGA Filmmakers film group and continued to produce short films such as "Lost Memory", "Go Fish", "The Mrs. Club" (trailer) and made her directorial debut with "Mugged.
Currently she works on filming events, producing commercial content and short films for her company, KokoAtDawn Productions.
