Allison Nazarian Bio

Hi, I’m Allison and this is my story:

I am a writer.

I use words to help people like you and businesses like yours make money, make sense and make things happen. I work as a ghostwriter, a copywriter and a consultant to businesses and organizations of all sizes.

This is the part where I tell you I am highly educated: I hold a B.A. in English from the University of Pennsylvania and an M.S. from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. I have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, INC, Entrepreneur, Fortune Small Business and elsewhere. I also wrote two books on do-it-yourself copywriting, including One Minute Copywriter. 

Beyond the work stuff and the schooling and all that impressive experience; Originally from the Washington, D.C. area, I am also a sometimes-speed-walker, always- speed-reader, introvert (INFJ), Howard Stern superfan, Counting Crows devotee, two-time tattoo recipient, devoted NFL fan (Washington Redskins, sigh) and someday-bookstore owner. I am gluten-free, sugar-free, obsessed with de-cluttering and always in search of a hobby that doesn’t include reading, writing or watching documentaries alone in a dark house. I am writing a memoir about my experience growing up as the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors. I live in Florida with my two teenagers, my honey and my Black Lab.

P.S. You read all the way to here, wow! Thank you! If you were wondering about the photo on this page, yep, that’s me. I was 4- or 5-years-old and engaging in a habit that took me nearly four decades to break.

P.P.S. Let’s talk: Connect with me here to discuss writing, speaking, teaching — whatever!
