About Us

Our team of multi-disciplinary artists are seeking human expression, human connection, and human interaction.

We are exploring narratives in science fiction, fantasy, drama, and comedy as well as collaborating with local artists throughout the East Coast to bring our audience a true representation of what it is to be a working artist today.

Erika Christie

CREATOR - HEAD WRITER - SHOWRUNNER

Erika launched Imagine Alley Digital to exercise her demons (artistic and literary. . . mostly) and to have one platform where she could pursue all of her strengths in film, theatre, music, writing, and photography.

She has long bounced between film, theatre, and the digital realm as she creates new worlds with the intent of making them reality. We ALL contribute to making the future we want. Erika, and her team, are making the world stronger, better educated, more empathetic, and willing to embrace and empower those around us. She is consistently inspired by the people working with her and the remarkable creators and educators she meets along the way.

She is eternally grateful to her amazing team.

"Human creativity leads to social cohesion as artists create our collective reality."
