Born and raised in New York, Ali credit her love for fashion to a city upbringing, and also a kinship style icon – her grandmother. After completing college with a fashion merchandising and management degree, Ali’s career jumpstarted when she accepted a position with Target. The accomplishment was a major responsibility, one which included opening a flagship NY store and working with international designers, a first for Ali at the time. Moreover, she was also designing for industry big names like Fragments, Coach and Talbots. Once Ali achieved in-house fashion experience, she made a rapidly successful transition to television and film. This shift eventually led to a move to Hollywood, where the Ali Levine Design firm is currently headquartered. Ali’s skills, resourcefulness, and city-girl energy immediately led to jobs on Mercy and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, where she had the opportunity to work with Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan. Since relocating to Los Angeles, Ali’s work can be seen on Fran Drescher’s Happily Divorced, In Time with Justin Timberlake, Kanye West’s World Throne Tour, X-Men First Class, New Girl, and much more. A member of both the Motion Picture Costumes Local 705 and Design Guild 892, the red-head with hazel-green eyes and an even more colorful ensemble resides in Toluca Lake with her husband, Justin, two fashionable cats, Dolce and Ferragamo, and newest member, a fashionable pup named Oscar. When Ali is not working, she continues to exercise her devotion to her field by scouring the hottest trends all over Los Angeles and New York. She has been dubbed the new “IT” girl in the celebrity styling world.

REMEMBER TO USE #krlivepodcast #phyllismackenzie #reversegentrification ON SOCIAL MEDIA SO WE CAN POST OUR IDEAS ABOUT HOW TO END THE CLIMATE CRISIS INDIVIDUALLY AND SAVE THE PLANET. Stephanie Miller founded Zero Waste in DC to focus on the application of zero waste strategies that have a real and sustainable impact. With a goal of reaching as wide an audience as possible, she provides advisory services to individual households as well as community and corporate presentations. Within her 25-year career at the International Finance Corporation, the private sector arm of the World Bank Group, she served as Director of IFC's Climate Business Department where she led global teams to find innovative solutions to climate change. In her book Zero Waste living: The 80/20 Way, entails how many of us feel powerless to solve the looming climate and waste crises. We have too much on our plates and may think these problems are better solved by governments and businesses. This book unlocks the potential in each "too busy" individual to be a crucial part of the solution. Stephanie Miller combines her career focused on climate change with her own research and personal experience to show how a few, relatively easy lifestyle changes can create a significant positive impact. Using the simplicity of the 80/20 rule, she shows us those things (the 20%) that we can do to make the biggest (80%) difference in reversing the climate and waste crises.

THANKS LOVES FOR BEING PART OF #podrocque #krlivepodcast #phyllismackenzie. Remember, start the change within your own community! Ruby Peru is a sloppy workaholic and independent operator with weird sleep habits and limited knowledge of pop culture. She drives a beat-up pickup truck, and some opine she’s a little bit of a badass. Studying under Kurt Vonnegut in the eighties and David Foster Wallace in the nineties, made her want to never be a writer – instead be a person who surfs, climbs, and looks cool on a motorcycle. She isn’t and doesn’t. Instead, Ruby is ready when you are to write ever more meaningful things to ponder between the covers of a book. The first novel in her own name (Bits of String too Small to Save) is available wherever you buy books. Her most recent co-release is Business Cards and Shoe Leather, with Larry Vaughn.
