Hi, I'm Alisha!

Ten years ago, fresh out of college, I started a blog to document my "career-y" things. (When you graduate with a double major AND a minor, trying to pick just one field of interest, just one career can be pretty impossible; it's still true today). I decided to launch a platform to talk about my journey, share exciting projects and keep friends updated on my personal life. 

Enter: alishainthebiz.

alishainthebiz is...

  • short for "Alisha in the business," a nickname I was given for being in the know, being driven, being business-minded
  • a digital archive of all my career-y things
  • filled with advice series, personal essays, press clips and events
  • spans topics from my work in media and technology to personal interests like food, drink and travel writing

Okay, but like, what's your official bio?
