Allison is a southern firecracker!
Allison is a Texan through and through. If she’s not leading you on a one-of-a-kind tour, then she’s likely swimming in a local watering hole, eating Tex-Mex, or visiting her family’s cattle ranch. She grew up in the hill country, and after living as a nomad in different places across the country for a few years, the southern charm of Texas called her back home.
She is currently pursuing her dream of acting in Austin’s eclectic film & television scene. Allison’s passions are all things artistic and creative. She directs on stage, writes plays and screenplays, and showcases her singing skills when the occasion calls. She also teaches the improv program at the Georgetown Palace Theatre and sometimes hops on stage herself!
Allison is a southern firecracker with a sunny personality. She is soaking up all the new and exciting experiences Austin has to offer and she’s ready to share that with you!”
Artist and Filmmaker
Joseph Bussey is an artist and filmmaker who, for the past 30-years has specialized in creating incredible cinematic images no matter what the camera. Some of his most iconic work was created with micro four-thirds cameras. As his knowledge of filmography developed he embrace not what was just popular but new technology.
Starting out at early childhood in the fine art of painting, drawing, and sculpture cultivating design concepts and expression of mood to second nature. Alongside his passion for fine art was his passion for food and the tie it has to family, friends, and a world of discovery and excitement. At age 15 he began at Barnard St Bakery learning the secretes of doughnuts, cookies, cakes, and Danish braids. After college, he was known for his long hours of help in the kitchen at camps and catering gigs. His most memorable times was assisting Chef Allen the traveling chef in Florida providing signature meals backstage for VIP at large concert and festivals. Meeting, working, and learning from Chef Allen was brought on by not applying or seeking, because of Joseph’s love to capture the moments on video. While Joseph was working as an offshore underwater construction in the Gulf of Mexico, the chief engineer saw that passion in his film work for local bands in Houston Texas and recording their experience on a boat in the eye of Hurricane Ike, and wanted to give more opportunities for the combination of the film in the art of life.
After years of working as apprentices in sculpture to Jill Sablosky, a school in Italy and professor of sculpture in Houston Joseph has made the past nine years making Austin, Texas his home. Joseph has captured and prepared experience from some of Austin's famous festivals, community dance, local songwriters, musicians, artist and foodies for others to see what can be enjoyed when visiting Austin and surrounding Texas area. Be on the look for his developing birds-eye view projects in the making!
