Hello, I’m Alison. I’m a baby of the seventies and a child of the eighties. At school I was good at dancing and passing exams. To get my BA(Hons) American Studies from the University of Sheffield I lived in the USA for a year, so now I am forever in love with green chile and New Mexico.

Apart from being a shop assistant and a receptionist, my working life has covered academic research, administration and events marketing. I’m skilled at organising things, managing my time and finding stuff out.


Since I started my business in November 2005, I’ve worked on many different projects for clients small and large. My work is varied and challenging, and I get to work with all sorts of lovely people.

I can’t run, throw or catch, but I do cook, make clothes, bags and greetings cards, watch films and tackle crosswords (sometimes successfully). I am one of three founders of Sheffield’s pop-up cinema Magic Lantern Film Club. And every summer I get slightly obsessed with the Tour de France.
