Alisha is a small town girl who always ends up living in big cities. She lives in Los Angeles, but you wouldn’t know it from her cowboy boots and New York accent. Brophy received her BA in English Lit, and a minor in Creative Writing from UC Berkeley. She received her MFA in Screenwriting from UT-Austin, where she met her co-writer, Scott Miles. She also taught screenwriting at the university level. She is a recent Moth GrandSLAM champion, and you can hear her storytelling broadcast nationally on “The Moth” radio hour. Her projects are often inspired by her back-story that includes traveling carnival work and competitive dog training… Seriously.
Scott lives for BBQ and cinema in equal measure. Inspired by the DIY-spirit of Austin, Texas, he’s worked the last several years writing feature films, directing short web content and creating a couple of comic strips, including "CEO-M-G" and “Ramona Sprinkles is Not Your Friend” (which may or may not be loosely based on Alisha). With degrees in both film production and screenwriting, Miles is quite comfortable switching hats between writer and director, so long as one of those is a fancy stovepipe hat like Lincoln wore. He thinks he’d look good in that.
