Biography

Hi, I'm Alyssa.

 

(That's me in the photo.)

I’m a writer and producer currently studying film production at USC School of Cinematic Arts. A self-proclaimed dad joke connoisseur, I strive to find the comedy in all situations and hope to showcase these moments in my work.

I’d love to one day follow in the footsteps of Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey, or Amy Poehler and become a comedy TV showrunning writer/producer/director extraordinaire.

 

Or at least become one of those!

Some of my interests include:

  • Comedy in all forms — improv, sketch, standup

  • Satire and absurdism as means of making serious observations of society

  • Late night monologues as a way to stay informed without having daily mental breakdowns

  • Documentaries about obscure topics — think Vice and Vox
