The hilarious, profound, and curious Julie Gieseke was a writer that didn’t write until eight years ago . . . She took a solo performance workshop to get over her fear of being in front of groups, partly inspired by her job as a Visual Co-Creator (www.mapthemind.org). Julie not only got over her fear, but discovered she actually loved performing her own writing.
Since 2011 Julie has written and performed 16 solo shows to audiences in San Francisco, Austin, TX, Washington DC, and Toronto, gaining an avid and loyal following for her no-holds-barred, courageous authenticity.
Julie may or may not be motivated by the romantic hope that by divulging her flawed and failed dating strategies as a single lesbian in or near the lesbian capital of the world, it could result in some dates. It hasn’t yet. But she’s not giving up.
