Allison graduated from Auburn University where she obtained a bachelors degree in Anthropology and a minor in Womens Studies. However, instead of advancing her studies further she decided to pursue new creative avenues. Now she is the happy owner of her own creepy cute business hobbit.town jewelry. When Allison is not making wacky statement jewelry she shines all of her creative mojo towards her other unique creations including art boxes, jewelry holders, clutch bags and plushies. Allison is a scavenger artist; constantly on the look out for tiny lost or broken objects to re-invent and breathe new life into. She draws most of her inspiration from comic books, toys, Lolita fashion and nerd culture.
Now what does all this have to do with music? Well, writing is yet another creative medium that has continually kept Allisons interests elevated. In pursuit of exploring and expanding her creative palate, Allison decided to team up with Consequence of Sound in the spring of 2007 to start building experience as a writer, while also enjoying herself. Music, as an experience has always been important to Allison from all perspectives. She is a classically trained pianist and particularly enjoys electro/jazzy/dance music as its essential she remains in a constant state of motion. No joke. This girl will dance to anything!
Keeping this all in mind, Allison eagerly awaits the day when she is able to toss all of her dreams aside and join the gypsy punk revolution alongside Gogol Bordello.
