About me

Every night your brain generates a multi-sensory show that tickles you under the moonlight. An award-winning writer director and creative director, I conjure sensory experiences that you will hopefully never forget. As a former journalist-turned adwoman and now director, I love developing ideas into action with a team of creatives and keepers of a production. Everyone leaves their fingerprints. With emotions, culture, music and movement, I make everyday surrealism for adland and film. I love to showcase new voices that twist our expectations of entertainment, industry, culture and education.

  • 2011's Queer of the Year campain was the most titillating account I worked on in 2011. It gave me a chance to co-write scripts with NY comedian Mikala Bierma, creator of the YouTube show Disappointing Gay Best Friend. Then we hosted the submissions and show off our QOTY Facebook page. http://resultats.infopresse.com/prixboomerang/2011/Resultats/marketing_interactif/campagne_ligne/sidlee_queer.html http://cargocollective.com/alison/Queer-of-the-Year

  • In 2010 the Queer of the Year contest was born. We asked for entries, picked out finalists and let the public vote on the winner. The whole campaign was run on its own microsite. http://resultats.infopresse.com/prixboomerang/2010/Resultats/index.html http://cargocollective.com/alison/Queer-of-the-Year
