Daisy Alioto’s career has touched practically every genre of media. From a fashion internship at ELLE, she went on to intern at NPR (twice) in audience development, where she had the privilege of pressing ‘tweet’ on the news that the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. From there, she held staff positions in audience engagement at International Business Times and Time Inc., where she supported the launch of the US edition of Wallpaper* magazine.
Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Paris Review, TIME, New York Magazine, The New Republic, GQ, Longreads, Los Angeles Review of Books, Curbed, Vox, CityLab and Condé Nast Traveler among others.
In 2013, she graduated from Bowdoin College where she was awarded the Academy of American Poets Prize, the Bowdoin College Non-Fiction Prize and the DeAlva Stanwood Alexander First Prize (for best baccalaureate speech). Her poetry has appeared in The Christian Science Monitor and Triangle House Review. She aspires to live in a lighthouse.
