Graceann is an actor, writer, and producer. After graduating from New York University with a degree in Dance Education, she performed with several choreographers and presented her own work, in addition to being a teaching artist for New York City Ballet. Performing as a dancer gave way to acting, when she took an improv class at the People's Improv Theater and was instantly hooked. She continued her improv training through advanced levels at the PIT and Upright Citizens Brigade. From improv, she moved into dramatic acting, which she loves just as much as comedy. Her dramatic training includes Deena Levy Theatre Studio and Shakespeare and Company.

Performance credits include HBO, CBS, NJ Lottery, Discovery ID, Dixon Place, B.B. King's, 3-Legged Dog, UCB, the PIT, and several independent films. Her full resume can be found here.

In addition to acting, she is an award-winning filmmaker who writes, directs, and produces her own work, which has screened at festivals across the country. She was a writer/director/performer for two seasons of PITtv, the digital video arm of the People's Improv Theater.

She is also a writer and performer for the stage. She created and performs in her solo show FARTY OF ONE; has written and performed several monologue and storytelling pieces, including one that made her a finalist in the 2017 Manhattan Monologue Slam Annual Championships; and is one-half of DOUBLE D, a two-prov group she founded with Nannette Deasy. Double D performs monoscene improv sets all over NYC. They created two fully-improvised hour-long plays, which have been performed at the Scranton Fringe Festival, NYC ImprovFest, and various venues.

When not acting, auditioning, taking class, rehearsing, writing, or planning her next project, Graceann likes to lay on the couch and watch TV like any sane person. She's also learning to play the 1933 Conn trumpet she inherited from her grandfather. She has two live cats and one dead freeze-dried cat, Beeker, with whom she has made two films and who appears as a regular cats, I mean cast, member in Double D’s improvised play SCRANTON BUCKETS.
