Although Alisha grew up in landlocked Arkansas, her upbringing as a 1st gen kid taught her that the world was filled with people from different communities, cultures, and backgrounds. Her curiosity eventually lead her to live in Australia and travel across 10 countries across Asia, Oceania, and North America.
An artist by trade, Alisha dabbles in filmmaking, theater, and design. She loves the intersections of art and social and environmental justice. She has been involved in activist groups such as the Queer Union & Student Labor Action Movement (NYU) and Heal the Bay (Los Angeles). She is currently working with plastic free mermaid Kate Nelson and producing a short documentary about New York artists, educators, and activists of color on how their work and lives have altered since the 2016 election. When she’s not busy working on films she loves to design websites for artists and non-profits. She is a graduate of NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
