Communications Professional/ Fashion Designer/ Hair Extension Artist/ Copywriter/Editor/ Web Designer
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.
Prior to VLV, she was 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.
Her passions besides Writing and Editing have always been Music, Fashion and Beauty, and she has always been a highly motivated side-hustler. She launched her own clothing line, Punk Majesty in 2014, and her Hair Extension business, Ultra Glam Hair in 2006. She also builds websites, writes copy and sets up e-commerce sites, social media profiles and advises on branding and social media strategies for artists as a side-hustle.
Her clothing line, Punk Majesty has been worn by some well-known musicians she admires: 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 has 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 T-shirts and hoodies for these shelter-in-place times.
Now that her career working with live events has come to a halt, she’s looking to start her next chapter. Her goal is to find a new position that utilizes her Communications skills and aligns with a new company that she can focus her passion and energy into for this next stage in her career. She has 20 years’ experience in Writing, Editing, PR, Branding, Internal & Media Communications, Building & Maintaining Relationships, Events and Team Management (both Remote and in Live Events). She is excited for the future, always sees the ‘glass half full,’ and welcomes the next challenge! Alisha is a lifelong learner, and is currently taking multiple classes to broaden her skill sets during the pandemic, as well as co-authoring a book with a well-known Rockabilly Musician.
