Alison Grasso is an accomplished editor residing in New York City. Her career began to blossom as a young and aspiring editor as early as high school. Alison is a visual storyteller, with an innate sense for documentary-style projects as well as beauty and fashion work. Her roster includes working with global and national brands such as Pantene, Garnier, L’Oreal, Target, Gatorade, and Verizon.

Aside from her career as a commercial editor, Alison also shoots, directs, writes and edits her own short videos. We’ve nicknamed her the “Jane of All Trades”. Many of her videos are focused on her other passions — craft beer and small businesses within New York City. Her work has collected various accolades throughout the festival circuit, including an award for “Best Made in NY” at the NY Food Film Festival in 2013 and “Best Super Short” at the NY Food Film Festival in 2016. An experimental short she edited, “Dear Country,” which reflected the Women’s March in 2017, screened at the 2018 Annapolis Film Festival. Furthermore, a documentary short which she directed, shot and edited, titled “Volcano Bread,” is being showcased at the Alimentarium Food Museum in Switzerland and also screened at the Eat Art event in Sweden.

In her spare time, Alison is a devoted dog owner, avid traveler, and craft beer enthusiast. In 2016, she beat out over 7,000 other applicants to become a World of Beer Drink It Intern for the summer. World of Beer sent her to numerous breweries across the country and abroad where she had the opportunity to network with brewers, attend festivals and events, document the experience via social media, and generate both photo and video content direct-to-brand.
