Allison is a writer of character-driven comedy and drama. In addition to an interest in characters, particularly women, who spurn intimacy and vulnerability, she also seeks to explore the relationship between fear, shame, and power without ever forgetting to make her audience laugh and gasp along the way.
To further develop her voice, Allison has enrolled in Northwestern University’s MFA in Writing for the Screen and Stage program. Since beginning the program, Allison has placed in the BlueCat Screenplay Competition, the Screencraft Horror Screenplay Competition, and the Screencraft Stage Play Competition. She has interned for Full Spectrum Features, FilmNation Entertainment, and Snobby Hobo Productions.
Prior to moving to the Midwest, Allison graduated summa cum laude from Georgetown University, spent a year studying law at the University of Pennsylvania, assisted in the publication of Alan Greenspan and Adrian Wooldridge’s economic history Capitalism in America, and worked in development at the Folger Shakespeare Library.
