Love, beauty, art, and being close to British Columbia's mountains are the most important things to Allison. She is a 48 year old mother of three and photographer. She moved to Canada 13 years ago from Egypt where she started her family and has a business. When I asked Allison what makes her laugh so hard it hurts she responded, “my daughters, Seinfeld, and my husband’s logic.” Her favourite quality about herself is her kindness and she says she wishes to be perceived as spiritual yet grounded, kind and cool. When I asked her one thing she knows for sure she replied, "That the Universe revolves with love. That laughter and music are the greatest healers. That bowing to the Great Mystery will pave your way to contentment."

Q&A Feature:

What is a fun fact about you that you haven’t told me yet?

I once made a documentary about a British man married to an Indian woman that believed he was once abducted by aliens from a desert in Nevada. He also made his own toothpaste.
