The Born Wild Project connects families with wilderness and wildness. We do this by curating and creating media that inspires and informs, and then sharing it through our film series and social media network. We hope you’ll join the community.

Director, Built Wild
Creative Director, Born Wild Project
Alisa worships the wilderness and is 100% dedicated to adventure. One day she will make babies, but right now she’s overwhelmed with how perfect her 10 nieces and nephews are and gets her kid-time teaching them to skateboard, throwing sleep-over parties in her tipi, and taking them on excursions where they discover they enjoy things like eating eel. Alisa is a writer, publisher and filmmaker with a track record of involvement in projects that make a lot of noise to promote positive social causes; recent clients include the Amplifier Foundation and the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation. She makes films and other magic with Aly Nicklas and NOVA, publishes radical art with Outsider Books, is represented by Foundry Literary + Media and holds a B.S. in Journalism from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
