Allison enjoys any opportunity to build upon her technical theatre skills because it makes her a better stage manager. She has worked as an electrician, designer, carpenter, stitcher, deck sound, playwright, and on backstage crews in order to learn about every aspect of theatre she possibly can. She creates visual art through a variety of mediums including digital collage, oil painting, pencil and charcoal sketching. Despite being immersed in the arts, Allison loves biking, Harry Potter, dancing, reading, and dark humor jokes. She takes every opportunity to travel to somewhere new and explore the world.
