Writer & Brand Collaborator

Alison Brahe burst on the Australian modeling scene as a 16year old in the mid-80’s. With her gorgeous smile and all-Australian beach body, she lit up the covers of Australia’s top fashion and pop magazines. Cleo, Dolly and Cosmopolitan, kept her face front and center with fashion spreads and stories. It was rare that she was not on the cover every month of one of these publications, well into the 90’s.

Cleo and Dolly readers often voted her as one their women of the century, such was the impact Alison was having.

Advertisers knew this and clambered to have Alison Brahe be their face- Portmans, Cover Girl makeup, Nivea, Blackmores, Brian Rochford and JaquieE were major clients.

Network television came calling… Channel Nine gave Alison her the daily afternoon children’s show GUESS WHAT, which enjoyed great success and she was a popular guest host of the iconic, HERE’S HUMPHREY which cemented a place in the hearts of many Australians.

All the while Alison was enjoying public success, she fell in love and married aspiring Aussie actor/performer Cameron Daddo in late 1991.  After 8 months of marriage the pair emigrated to the USA and Alison’s life began a new path.

Upon arriving in Los Angeles, Alison studied acting, secured management and an agent. She worked on television commercials, was cast in the pilot remake of VALLEY OF THE DOLLS and some episodes of comedy television. But this was not what Alison’s passion… teaching children/ taking care of children and indeed, having her own children were her hearts desire, so she walked away from the entertainment business.

In the mid-90’s Alison began studying with the Bodyfulmind Institute, founded by LA 80’s health expert Doreen Rivera (the driving force behind Jane Fonda’s Workout). There she trained and taught Bodyfulmind exercise classes and headed up the Pregnancy Program which readied couples for birth, labor support and post-partum support. Whilst doing this she studied Massage Therapy at IPSB and in 1999 received her degree. Alison’s work at DRBMI took her into 2010.

From 2009, Alison’s passion for teaching moved into another phase, school teacher. She’d given birth to 3 children- Lotus ’96, River ’00 and Bodhi ’06. For three years she worked close to south central Los Angeles at Windsor Hills Elementary School (LAUSD) teaching 3rd graders expression of emotions and anti-violence through nature based arts.

In 2013, she achieved her teaching degree from UCLA in Early Childhood, and began full-time teaching at Under the Oaks, Malibu with the pre-school class. She continued her own studies and training in Rudolph Steiner Education at Highland Hall Waldorf School. Today Alison is teaching and assisting in the pre-school at Westside Waldorf School (the school her three children attended).

Alison has always been active in charity work, sponsoring children of WORLD VISION for three decades. From 2007-12 she was involved with GULU WALK and The Invisible Children, a charity that works with rehabilitating child soldiers in Uganda. She continues to look for and support worthwhile charitable organizations.

Though her life in front of cameras ended, she’s continued to work on her screen writing. Having written and produced the US web-series POLLY G. Today she’s working on several feature film scripts.

Alison is married to Cameron Daddo, they have three children and from January 2017 will again, be living in Australia.

The Australian Geographic Society announced today that it will donate $50,000 to the New South Wales and Queensland bushfire emergency for support and recovery. The Society is also appealing to its wide network of followers ­to dig deep and contribute to the appeal to help those directly affected by the tragedy. Money from the fundraiser will be dispersed to support wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, habitat restoration and communities devastated by the fires. “The Society hopes these funds can help alleviate some of the heartache being suffered by the many Australians affected by these extreme bushfires, and provide support to the many people working hard to help,” said the Chair of the Australian Geographic Society, David Haslingden.
Australian Geographic’s Managing Director, Ms Jo Runciman, said that in addition to the $50,000 being committed directly to the appeal by the Australian Geographic Society, $1 from every purchase made at the Australian Geographic on-line store until 20 December will be donated to the appeal. “The communities of rural Australia have always been among our biggest supporters and we want to give back to those communities and to those supporting them,” she said.
