"I love people. Everybody. I love them, I think, as a stamp collector loves his collection. Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me.” – Sylvia Plath
Gracie was raised in upstate New York where she began acting and writing at a very young age. Involved in dance, monologue reciting, and singing lessons, she and her sisters had created a filmmaking company, GLISS FILMS, by age 15. After graduating high-school, Gracie moved on to study English and Theatre at Cazenovia College in upstate New York. She was a member of the college’s theater group, The Working Title Players, and served as president and secretary during two separate semesters.
