"I AM NOT A MOMMY BLOGGER...
Gretchen is an eclectic writer, a hopeful feminist, a sheepish Mets fan and a proud mom.
She has penned two feature films, several shorts, two full-length plays, many one-acts, lotsa sketch comedy pieces and several personal essays. She is also a freelance copywriter.
A founding member of the OOBR-Award winning comedy troupe Lesbian Pulp-O-Rama!, Gretchen based her first short film, Sondra Stingray: Sapphic Gumshoe on the character she and fellow Pulpster, actress Anna Fitzwater, initially created for the stage. The collaboration continued with Anna and director Heather de Michele through a few Filmaka-finalist shorts and culminated in 2015 with the trio's first feature, As Good As You (Winner- Best LGBT Feature, Hollywood Reel International Film Festival; distributed by First Run Features).

Her plays have been work-shopped and/or performed at New Georges, Dixon Place, Theatre of Note, The Lark and Abingdon.
Gretchen lives in Jackson Heights, Queens with her goofy son, her patient partner, their dog, Atticus and their cat, Cleo. She has a BA in English from Vassar College, an MFA in Theater from Sarah Lawrence and a Paralegal Diploma from NYU (because a gal's gotta eat).
