About Craig Titley

Currently both a writer and Executive Producer for ABC/Disney/Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Titley grew up in Mattoon, Illinois, blessed with teachers that encouraged his self-described “nerdy kid introvert” self. His parents also cheered on his star-gazing and comic-book habits, as long as he knew he would someday need a way to support himself.

Like so many children, Craig found comfort in comic books, especially those of the Marvel Universe, where people who were picked on became empowered. Later, his studies in Mythology and Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute triggered an insight that stories like those in the Marvel comic book can satisfy more than readers’ wish fulfillment: they exemplify a Jungian principle of the psyche—that power resides somewhere in all of us.

After double-majoring in English Literature and Business at Eastern Illinois University, Craig headed west to study at USC’s Peter Stark Motion Picture Producing program. Internships at Universal followed, and he spent a brief time as an executive for Nickelodeon’s feature film division. In television, Craig worked as a writer/producer on The Cape, and also with George Lucas and Lucasfilm Animation, penning episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Craig wrote for three huge movie franchises: Scooby-Doo, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Percy Jackson (See more of filmography at IMDB.) before landing his current, epically fulfilling gig as a writer/producer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Titley is a graduate of Eastern Illinois University, received his MFA from USC’s Peter Stark Program, and is currently completing a Ph.D. in Mythological Studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute.
