That Fat Girl Media was created by the multi talented Dana R. Griffin. After many years of working a day job Dana started her artistic journey by studying Improv at Second City, Scene Study at Piven Theater workshop, New York film Academy Digital Film Making Workshop, and the Illinois Center for Broadcasting.
Where did the name come from?
That Fat Girl came from when Dana started performing musical theater in 2009. People in the audience said “Who’s that fat girl who can really dance?” “Who’s that fat girl? She is really funny.” “Who’s that fat girl? She really commands the stage.” So instead of being insulted Dana owned it and decided to name her company That Fat Girl Media.
Dana is a single mom of a daughter, and lives in Crete, IL. Her background includes vocal music, musical theater, and improv.
