After Alisa’s family immigrated to the US from Russia and settled in New York City, Alisa found herself a new home at the LaGuardia High School for the Arts – a public school that fosters and promotes the arts and creativity as the cornerstone of their curriculum. Art is the main force in helping her survive and succeed after finding herself in a new country, without language skills or resources at the age of 15.
After graduating from the School for Visual Arts with a major in graphic design/advertising, Alisa worked as an art director at HBO, Showtime, Sony and Universal before switching to Madison Avenue and immersing herself in the world of big ad agencies and digital advertising. She has led creative campaigns for Mastercard, GM, Diageo, SSGA, Pfizer, Alcon and many other global brands. She spent her time between Paris and New York and has always been involved in volunteering her time and expertise to the issues of mental health, displaced persons and domestic violence.
Currently, Alisa is the Creative Director at Inseev Interactive.
