Alli Joseph

Alli Joseph has been telling stories since she invented
Hooper, the narcoleptic diaper truck-driving dog who
saved lives and was a prize-winning baker, when she was
five. Today, Alli is a TV host, a producer of television
shows and documentary films, an author, and a
marketing/branding specialist in lifestyle and automotive.
She is currently hosting, writing and producing a new
half-hour entertainment/lifestyle show for up-market
resort network Plum TV, called “Get In”. Prior to her work
at Plum, she hosted a food/entertaining trend show on
the Food Network called “What’s Hot! What’s Cool!”

Alli developed her ability to spot hot fads and pop culture
branding opportunities for clients over ten years' time
working as a creative for large media, advertising,
marketing and Internet companies like Grey Worldwide,
Margeotes Fertita Partners, Newscorp, Viacom (VH1 and
CBS News), Cablevision, WB,, AOL,
Time Inc., and Hachette Filipacchi.

In the late ‘90s, Alli was Director of Content at a still-
afloat Internet company. Useful in a high-stress
newsroom or on-set on many levels, Alli is also a certified
Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) with a science and
technology background, though she hasn’t had the time
to save anyone lately. This is because she just completed
her first book for Harper Collins, about an American
Shaolin kung-fu master from Harlem who saves violent
teens using the martial arts, which will be published in
August 2005.

Alli attended the Bronx High School of Science, where she
won a Westinghouse scholarship, and began her media
career in the Internet industry in 1995 after she was
graduated from Vassar College with a BA in psychology/
sociology. Pondering a life studying marine mammals, Alli
was accepted into a prestigious biology-psychology
master’s internship program at the University of Hawaii
Manoa, whereupon she moved to Oahu for a time and
worked with bottlenose dolphins.

Since then, Alli’s work has run the gamut from coverage
of the 1996 Republican Primary and the 2000 Democratic
National Convention, to Daytona Bike Week, Sundance and
the Oscars. Her writing has appeared in George, Premiere,
Maxim, Playboy, The New York Daily News, Mercedes
Momentum, The Miami Herald, People Magazine, The New
York Post, and many other magazines and newspapers.

When not writing or doing documentary work, Alli has
consulted for large media companies, including Lifetime/
ABC, Oxygen Media, and CBS, and maintains relationships
with New Line Television, MTV/MTVi, AOL-Time Warner,
Playboy, Al Roker Productions, Cablevision, WB television,
and CBS News. She is currently writing and producing a
documentary film on saving the ancestral lands of the
Native American tribe to which she belongs, the
Shinnecock, and in 2003 created and now programs a
Native American section at the Hamptons International
Film Festival.
