Allyson Rice is the owner of Allyson Wonderland. Allyson spent the last several years as the Assoc. Director of Creative Development, as well as a Producer, at The STAGE Network. Prior to that, she spent a decade running personal growth retreats around the country through her business, The Total Human. Allyson is now focused, once again, on her own creative work — writing, jewelry-making, drawing and painting, and creating handmade ornaments (a family tradition started by her late grandmother Libby Rice). Allyson Wonderland was created as a central location for all of that creative work. Prior to founding The Total Human, Allyson spent many years on stage and TV as an actress/dancer/singer in NYC and Los Angeles, after graduating from Northwestern University. Her most well-known role was 7 years as Connor Walsh on “As the World Turns.” Prior to that, Allyson had a paper route when she was 12. She now lives in Los Angeles, where in her spare time she does photography, dances, DJs at blues dancing events, collects PEZ dispensers, and cleans up all-pervasive tumbleweeds of blonde hair left by her miraculously-not-bald-yet dog Stella. If her knees hold up, roller derby could be next… we’ll see. In the meantime, she continues to cover everything in sight with Christmas lights year-round, because you can’t stop her. You’re not the boss of her. Ok, we have time for a few follow-up questions…

“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.” – Cecil Beaton
