Allison Eve Zell


Webby award-winning XD Content Strategist & Content Creator with a critically-acclaimed background in theater & film. Experience design (XD) is based on the needs & tastes of those who will experience it & I try to apply this principle to my content work, be on a digital product, for a brand, in a museum, on television, on stage, in a movie theater, or some combination therein.

My background is in writing, editing & directing for the stage & screen(s). Some of this work is anthologized in books of plays & about theater; presented by The Lincoln Center Directors Lab & The Public Theater; premiered at The Tribeca Film Festival; broadcast on network & cable television; & is on permanent display at The 9/11 Memorial Museum.
