Alisa: I have a huge love for music and the music that I sing. Acting has always been my baby. I know that a lot of you must think where is Alisa's music, when is that moment going to happen when she drops us a hot one? It's coming but it's all about timing and making the sound that I feel best represents me.
Alisa: I have a few different sounds. I have some rock-pop styles and then I have that club feel. One of my favorite artists is Fergie. How she has all kinds of styles to me is the bomb! I can sing many different styles of music but I like dance-pop the best.
Alisa: (On what encouraged her to take up extreme boat racing) I started off as the spokes person for a company called SuperBoat International. I test drove a 29 footer for the first time in KeyWest. I loved it because it was such a rush. The boat was like my new best friend. It was the speed and the thrill that did it for me. Since then I continued on with speed boat driving and started a team. Now I race when I get the chance while I am not shooting.
Alisa: (On what she does to avoid stress) I try and hang out with my friends, being around positive people are vital for me. I try and take a minute to myself and relax. Having alone time is helpful so you can get yourself balanced.
