Performer. Producer. Maker. Teacher. Curator. Jokester. Some words I would use to describe myself.
Storytelling. Shakespeare loving. Passionate living. Other words I would use to describe myself.

I am the husband to an all around awesome human being and performer Dana Kreitz (check her out at dana.kreitz.net). I am repped by Will Ball at Vie Model and Talent Agency. https://www.vieagency.com/portfolio/talent-non-union-men/men/1260685/griffin-stanton-ameisen.
I love working with people, idea generating, soul searching, and everything in between. Love theatre, film, tv and voiceover. I'd love to work with you. Got a project or an idea, reach out and let's chat. Thanks for visiting my site, and being interested in the work I do! With love, Griffin
