Maggie Baird was a main company member from 1994-2000. She recently completed writing her first feature film "Life Inside Out" with friend and co-writer Lori Nasso, which is slated for production in August of 2012. The film combines not only her passion for writing and acting but for music. As a songwriter she has recorded two CD's, "My Father's Daughter" and "We Sail", both with the wonderful musical talents of the Groundling's own fabulous musicians Larry Treadwell and Willie Etra. She credits her experiences at the Groundlings, writing and performing musical numbers as well as her many stints improvising songs with reigniting her love of songwriting and helping her overcome a fear of singing in public.
As an actor she has appeared in countless TV shows including Bones, The X-Files, Six Feet Under, Friends, etc. and geature films (Manic, Marilyn Hotchkiss's, etc.) She also performs the voices of some well known (and even more obscure) characters, including the voice of Samara in Mass Effect 2 and 3. Maggie is also an avid aerialist teaching and performing on the static trapeze and aerial silks. Still married to the wonderful man who came to every Groundling show she did, she is most happily a mother to their two fabulous childer, Finneas and Billie O'Connell.
