Hi! I'm Grace.

 I am a theatre artist from Berkeley, CA, now living in Chicago, IL. 

I graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in June 2020. I majored in Theatre and minored in Environmental Policy and Culture. In my time at Northwestern, I directed 5 major productions, assisted professional and M.F.A candidate directors, acted in several department and student-produced productions, and proudly served as the Artistic Director of Spectrum Theatre Co, a student theatre company focusing on sociopolitical theatre and activism.

I am very passionate about building empathy through theatre. I aim to broaden an audience's perspective through visceral work.

My directing style is focused on essentialism, transformation, and evoking visceral reactions; a relationship with the audience; and building community through process. I believe that live theatre can be a powerful tool for activism, and aim to participate in work that pushes boundaries, expands social consciousness, builds community and centers accessibility, diverse representation, and inclusion.

In my free time, I like to do puzzles (jigsaw, crossword, sudoku, you name it, I enjoy it!), eat yummy food, read books, go on hikes, and most of all, snuggle up with my dog Bruce!
