Little About Me

I tell stories that help build a compassionate, equitable, and sustainable future for all — often set to a killer dance beat.

Gia Mora

In addition to my work reporting on sustainability, my most recent music video, "Take Some Action (to Get Some Action)," my short film "Me and Ma'ii" (quarterfinalist, 2023 Golden Scripts Competition), and my newsletter Animal Matters all focus on the ways everyone can contribute to climate action.

"Anchors Away," the comedy pilot I co-created and starred in with Tara Jean O'Brien, screened at the Hollywood Reel Independent and the L.A. Lift-Off Film Festivals. With SCIRENS, I co-wrote the comedy pilot "MOMs" (semi-finalist, New York Television Festival Scripts Contest), and together, we co-produced "Scirens Show." I'm also producing a science documentary series with Emmy award-winning producer/director Michael A. Simon.

I've composed music for films, podcasts, comedy shows, and even a disco number for Minnesota Public Radio. My critically acclaimed one-woman musical comedy "Einstein's Girl" played to sold-out crowds across the country.

Now semi-retired from acting, I worked extensively in world-premiere musicals on both coasts and appeared in TV shows like "Baskets," "True Detective," and "Castle." My most recent film, "The Last Act," directed by Cannes award winner Shahab Hosseini, earned me a Best Actress award at the Gladiator Film Festival.

I serve on the Climate Tech Advisory Board for Dashboard.Earth, graduated with honors from the University of Colorado, and hold a diploma from the University of Pisa. These days, I live along the Los Angeles River on the ancestral land of the Tongva with my partner Denny and our adopted kitties, Wamba and Giacomo. (Read about our operatic meet-cute in the L.A. Times.)

As a person with both hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and a bone fragility disorder, I care greatly about improving personal and planetary health. Please let me know how I can help you!

Tanti baci a tutti,
