Meridith C. Grundei (she/her) is a New York-based actor, improviser, director, educator, and producer with a passion for devised work, non-linear storytelling and out-of-the-box thinking across stage and screen, though she can be found playing an overly concerned parent in a commercial or two. 

Her credits span across television, film, theatre, and voiceover work, with award-winning directors and producers around the country-she’s won some nice awards herself. She could elaborate on it all here, or you could just peek her resume below. 

Meridith has trained with some pretty awesome people (peek resume), cutting her improv teeth at IO Chicago and becoming an Associate Faculty Member at Second City Chicago. With an M.F.A. in Contemporary Performance from Naropa University, she is an Associate Artist with Local Theater Company (Boulder, CO) and travels the country teaching and performing improv as a guest and adjunct teacher. 

Meridith’s most recent acting credits include: BANISHED with CoLab Arts, The Father Project (in development), Memory Home with HB Studio and numerous readings and short films.
