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, documentary films, and a published author.
A [sic] Native New Yorker, Alli loves a good six-speed transmission and has been to racing school twice and driven high-speed, highly suspect Cannonball Run-like cross country road rallies like the Bullrun and the Gumball 3000 with Team Polizei – taking second place in 2005's Bullrun. In an effort to legitimize these radically outlandish events as "journalistically worthy," Alli has written about them in print and was featured as half of Team Polizei in Bravo UK's "Cops, Cars and Superstars 2".
Alli developed her broadcast, journalism and marketing skills over eleven years' time working on-air, online or in print for large media companies like Scripps (Food Network), Grey Worldwide, Margeotes Fertita Partners, Newscorp, Viacom (VH1 and CBS News), Cablevision, WB, Hotjobs.com/Yahoo, AOL, Time Inc., and Hachette Filipacchi. As well, her first book, "The Shaolin Way: Ten Modern Secrets of Survival from a Shaolin Grandmaster", was published in hardback by Harper Collins Entertainment in August 2005.
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. 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 in 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, the great Paris-Dakar Desert Rally, to Sundance, the Oscars, and many other national and international events. Her writing has appeared in George, Premiere, Maxim, Playboy, Auto Aficionado, The New York Daily News, Mercedes Momentum, The Miami Herald, People Magazine, The New York Post, and many other magazines and newspapers.
Alli has consulted for large media companies, including Lifetime/ABC, Oxygen Media, and CBS, and maintains relationships with NBC, Spike TV, MTV/MTVi, AOL, CNN/Time Warner, Meredith Corporation, Playboy, Al Roker Productions, Cablevision, WB television, and CBS News. She is currently writing and producing a documentary film called "The Last Piece", about saving the ancestral lands of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, of which she is a member.
