Growing up in Wagga, Ally dreamed of being ‘Like Alison Brahe’ on a kids TV show, and with a lot of hard work and obsessive determination, she got there.
Starting out at ‘Noise TV’ in Melbourne (yes she left Wagga), Ally learned the never-ending ropes of the small screen by getting her hands dirty with editing, producing, shooting and her favourite, hosting and particularly interviewing for this underground cult-hit youth music show.
During this time Ally was scouted by 3 Mobile to host ‘The Pitch’ which was one of the first in-house produced mobile phone TV shows. This saw Ally co-hosting alongside Aussie cricket legend, Darren Lehman, interviewing the greats of Australian Test cricket, Australia-wide.
From sports elite to gamer geek, Ally then landed her dream job hosting Ch 9′s gadgets and gaming show, ‘Cyber Shack’. A self confessed tech-head, having gained a BA in Graphic Design, Ally really shone in this role, developing her sharp wit and comic timing with her passion for interviews and technology.
True to her roots, Ally transitioned from Cyber Shack to a role as a freelance music reporter, indulging in her love of the interview with bands touring for Roadrunner Records and In The Mix TV, such as Lamb Of God, Amanda Palmer, Fatboy Slim, Sam Sparrow, Chromeo, Q-Tip, Trivium, Ewan Pearson and many more.
