Hi! I'm Grace.

I hail from the East Coast.

I now live in California. 

I make outsider art and have an ongoing love affair with disturbing the peace.

I am the Program Director for a non-profit devoted to ending youth homelessness called Waking the Village.

I will always call out your racist, homophobic, misogynistic joke.

I won't apologize for being a buzzkill.

I started a program and social justice art studio space for youth called the Creation District

I am a semi-professional tinkerer.

I write poetry and perform spoken word.

I run an open-mic called Speak Out Sacramento.

I believe in the power of urgent truth, fearless community, and strong coffee.

I am passionate about ending homelessness and write a blog called YIMBY about it.

I possess a severe allergic reaction to self-imposed ignorance. 

I teach art and theatre to high school students from underserved communities through a program called College Track.

I perform improv at ComedySportz Sacramento.

I am infuriatingly optimistic and believe that the world can be saved in glances exchanged between strangers. 

If you want to know more about me, read Frank O'Hara and put on a jazz record.
