Born and bred in Knoxville, Tennessee, Alyse has always had a flair for the dramatics. After self-producing and starring in a sold-out production of The Last 5 Years, as well as winning a Georgie Award for Best Comedy Actress in a Supporting Role for her portrayal of Little Sally in Urinetown: the Musical, Alyse was accepted into the #1 drama school in the UK and moved across the pond to attend the prestigious Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.
While at school, Alyse discovered a knack for screenwriting, and with the help of an incredible team, wrote, produced, and starred in her debut short film What the Fish! She has recently developed WTF! into a feature-length script that has been optioned and is currently in development. Alyse is also producing the film, as well as playing the lead role of Lily.
Since landing in LA, Alyse founded the female-driven production company Dumb Blonde Productions
(https://www.dumbblondeproductions.com/) where she has written, directed, and starred in several successful short films. She has also been involved in the critically-acclaimed web series Three Year Letterman which landed her an Indie Series Award nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.
When she's not producing WTF! or busy working her next project, you can find her in the Valley doodling or walking her best friend/wiener dog, Pheobe.
