Communications Professional/ Fashion Designer / Events Manager
Alisha is a PR & Communications Professional who has worked as a Writer, Editor, PR Manager and Publicist in Music and Entertainment for two decades. Since 2009, she’s been the one-Woman PR Machine for the annual Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend, which won “Best Music Festival in Las Vegas” 2019, and is the Longest Running Music Festival in Vegas, as well as the Largest Rockabilly Event in the World. The next VLV is scheduled for September 2021.
She worked as a Music, Fashion, Arts & Entertainment Columnist, as well as Editor-in-Chief in Digital Publishing, managing and editing a remote team of 30 other International Female writers from 1999-2010. She also worked as a Promoter and Manager of Live Music Events from 2003-2019.
Her passions besides Writing and Editing have always been Music, Fashion and Beauty. She's a highly motivated, nonstop side-hustler. She has her own clothing line, Punk Majesty, and Hair Extension business, Ultra Glam Hair. She also builds websites, writes copy, sets up e-commerce sites, social media profiles and advises on branding and social media strategies for artists. She is currently co-authoring a book with a well-known Rockabilly Musician.
Her clothing line, Punk Majesty has been worn by Jane Wiedlin of The Go Go’s, Captain Sensible of The Damned, Neil X of Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Marc Almond’s band, and Jake Hout of The Dead Boys. It's been carried in boutiques in San Francisco, New York City and London, and is available online and ships worldwide. Punk Majesty has done shows in San Francisco, Hollywood, Brooklyn, and New York City. Plans were in the works for shows in London, Los Angeles and Atlanta for Summer and Fall 2020, but they are postponed due to the Pandemic. Always quick to adapt, Alisha launched her first ever casual line of Hoodies & T Shirts and Accessories for these shelter-in-place times, as well as her first ever Home Goods Line.
Now that live events are on hold, she’s open to new challenges. She has 20 years’ experience in Writing, Editing, PR, Branding, Internal & Media Communications, Building & Maintaining Relationships, and Events and Team Management (both Remote and in Live Events). She's excited for the future and always sees the ‘glass half full.’ Alisha is a lifelong learner, and is currently taking classes to broaden her skill sets during the pandemic.
She has a BA in Speech Communications from San Francisco State University and an AA in Visual Communications from The Art Institute of Dallas, as well as many certifications in Social Media and Digital Marketing. Connect on Linked in. View her Writing Portfolio here.
