Alison is a radio and documentary film producer, researcher and writer. A graduate of the Transom Story Workshop, she received the 2015 Miller Audio Prize from The Missouri Review for her audio essay "Leaving Los Angeles," and went on to produce the Working Narratives podcast series,"Who Are You?"

Alison graduated magna cum laude with an MFA in Integrated Media Arts (social-issue, journalistic, nonfiction media) from Hunter College in 2008.
Alison started a blog she has to work on called Saved To Draft, curating email drafts left unsent, and runs a ridiculous Instagram account @fatcatinbrooklyn. She's lived in New York and L.A. and once spent a month walking 500 miles across Spain but is equally delighted lounging in her hometown at the Jersey Shore.
Alison lives in NJ right now with an 18-lb baby and a 20-lb cat.
