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.

    Samsung #Gearup Go Beyond FitnessCreated for Samsung Europe, this campaign showed that anyone, anywhere with any experience or ability can go beyond fitness #withGalaxy wearables watches.

  • Queer of the Year
    Queer of the YearIn 2011 Tourisme Montréal wanted to establish the city as a queer-friendly destination, so Sid Lee created a reality web show called Queer of the Year. Contestants flew in from all over the globe to enjoy some joie de vivre and compete for the grand title of Queer of the Year. I co-wrote scripts with our presenter, New York comedian Mikala Bierma, creator of the YouTube show Disappointing Gay Best Friend. Then we hosted the submissions and show on our QOTY Facebook page.
  • Chanel No. 5 L'eau
    Chanel No. 5 L'eauSome things only happen once. The big bang, the Beatles... or when Chanel re-launches the most famous fragrance in the world: Chanel No. 5 L'EAU. So how do you interest young women in their grandmother's fragrance? Simple. You know me, and you don't. I was recruited to help Chanel democratise its image for youth. I helped cement the tagline and interactive campaign that began in the floral fields of Grasse in May and will build until Christmas 2016. For social media events, I suggested women ta
  • Calvin Klien
    Calvin KlienTo launch Calvin Klein’s global AW13 women’s underwear collection with Christy Turlington, we helped women find their Silhouette using a 5-question quiz resulting in their personal bra category.
  • Adidas Originals AW12
    Adidas Originals AW12When adidas needed a global campaign for its FW12 Originals streetwear, our answer was "all originals #represent: the crosswalk is the catwalk." The 360-degree campaign celebrated street style on the most epic crosswalks in the world including Shibuya in Tokyo. Nicki Minaj headlined the spot and wrote Masquerade for us with adidas slang "shelve tops is on," a shout out to Run DMC's My adidas. Other Cameos included Jeremy Scott, 2NE1, Big Sean, Sky Ferreira, Derrick Rose and Kids These Days. People could enter a group of friends online to #representyourcrew for gear and glory. In print, we snagged space in Hypebeast’s premiere magazine and other tastemaking press.

    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.

    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
