My name is Joni Michelle Grommesh. I enjoy sunsets, long walks on the beach, and...just kidding! While those things can be quite wonderful for some, I am more of a "sunrise coming up over the mountaintops with just the right amount of morning breeze and wildlife tinkering all around you" kind of person. Many people would describe me as the friend to go to when you need a comedic yet profound yet outrageously optimistic pick me up. Feel free to come to me if you ever need to! My pick me ups are always free of charge, of course, that is only if you can find the secret coupon hidden somewhere on this site. And no refunds. I apologize. As you can probably tell by now, I love bright colors, jokes, writing, and being an advocate for always being uniquely yourself. And hopefully you can also tell by this point that I love acting. Which I suppose is what might have brought you here today.
A Little About Me...Sort of?
Born in: Wichita, Kansas on May 18th
Has lived in: Wichita, Kansas. Quito, Ecuador. Lima, Peru. Houston, Texas. Boston, Massachusetts. Los Angeles, California. Brooklyn, New York. Astoria, New York.
A genre of film I made up, but like very much: "When you get a feeling someone is going to call you and tell you you might die in 7 days, like in the movie The Ring, right after you finished the film." Under the Silver Lake with Andrew Garfield falls into this category. And so does Brigsby Bear with Kyle Mooney.
Hobbies: Writing. Painting. Drawing. Reading. Sewing Stuffed Animals. Comic/Anime Conventions. Hiking. Four-Wheeling. Skiing. Playing Pokémon. Watching my comfort films and tv shows over and over to help make me feel warm inside.
Inquisitive Facts about Me
Loves: My Dalmatians, Jo & Red. Pigs. Watching someone tuck their hair behind their ears. When someone starts a sentence right as they're finishing swallowing their food. Punk music. Talking my thoughts out loud to myself. Daydreaming. Telling stories that are made up just so I can arrive at a fun punchline I also made up.
Speaks: English and Spanish.
Second Favorite Song Quote: "Well I know that you're in love with him cause I saw you dancing in the gym. You both kicked off your shoes. Then I dig those rhythm and blues." - American Pie
First Favorite Song Quote: "When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me. Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me. Speaking words of wisdom, let it be." - Let it Be
