Anne is an independent filmmaker currently working from both New York and Los Angeles. Shuttling between two coasts, she prefers to reside in hotels.
In 2014 she founded her own film production company, which aims to promote the work of female filmmakers, or female driven material. She has been collaborating on projects of all types, utilizing varied platforms and creative production strategies. In addition to filmmaking, she continues to pursue her other long term interests, saving the world, journaling and photographing it.
Anne is one of seven freckled Irish siblings. While modeling at Ford Models throughout her teens and twenties in her native New York, she became interested in the multi-faceted collaborative process of commercial photography and film. Soon after Anne earned her B.F.A. from Parsons School of Design, she married Mario Grauso, a fashion executive. They divorced in 2010 and have one child.
As a corporate wife, Anne served on various cultural boards, volunteered, and raised funds for many campaigns that include a diverse group of charitable institutions based in New York ranging from The American Ballet Theater to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She received accolades and awards while raising her son, also managing three homes and traveling the world. Anne continues to commit herself to charity work in Los Angeles as well, volunteering and mentoring, focusing her efforts on underprivileged children at The Inner City Art Center, and other local organizations.
One of her long term goals is to form a non-profit foundation that consists of a multi-faceted film program, designed to inspire, entertain and empower at risk women and girls from violent areas globally. When Anne is not in her studio, on set or volunteering, she can be found in a dark movie theater, or exploring uninhabited and abandoned places.
