Alessandra is a freelance writer and creator at heart. Originally from New York, she has called Charlotte, North Carolina home since 2008. She is an avid writer of screenplays, articles, and business/product reviews. She has contributed to Uptown Magazine, Charlotte Magazine, My Carolina Town Magazine, and Yelp.com, among other publications, and was featured in the New York Times “Life and Style” section for her review of Ulta Beauty. Her original screenplay, “Polar Suburbia”, placed as a semi-finalist in the 2009 Moondance Film Festival, and she recently won the Member’s Choice award for her monologue “Amanda” on L.A. based website Showbizzle.com.
In addition to writing, Alessandra’s other addictions include interior decorating, cooking, gardening, and red wine. When not scoping the Charlotte scene, she plays mom to two twenty-five pound Maine coon cats who are convinced they are dogs, and drives her OCD husband completely nuts with her constant rearrangement of scenery in their home.
