As the Director of Business Development and Creator Success at Smiletime, Allegra is on the hunt for independent creators, content partners, and brands looking for a new way to strike intimate and authentic connections with their fans.

Smiletime is a streaming technology platform that harnesses audience participation and feedback at massive scale. Performers thrive on the roar of the crowd, and every user can enjoy the unparalleled thrill of making an immediate and palpable impact. Through chats, on-screen calls-to-action, and the ability to invite any audience member onto the virtual stage, creators connect with their viewers in intimate and spontaneous ways.

After graduating magna cum laude from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, Allegra joined the development team at Electus. Led by founder Ben Silverman, Electus is a next generation studio enabling premium content creators to engage with advertising and technology partners at the inception of the creative process and partner on the finished product across a global and multi-platform distribution model.

As a Presidential Scholar at USC, Allegra completed a media-rich senior thesis in which she developed prototypes that demonstrate how mainstream television can integrate transmedia storytelling into popular, relationship-driven series. Her latest piece, "Lizzie in Real Life: Social and Narrative Immersion Through Transmedia in 'The Lizzie Bennet Diaries,'​"​ was published in the June 2014 issue of Spectator, the USC School of Cinematic Arts' internationally distinguished journal of film and television criticism, as well as the Fall 2015 issue of Film Matters.
