As a composer and multi-instrumentalist, Ally has experience writing for a variety of settings and styles, and draws inspiration from composers such as Danny Elfman, John Powell, Shirley Walker, Shostakovich, and John Williams; she's particularly won over by great (and quirky) melodies. She was a successful candidate for both the 2018 Music Nova Scotia Mentorship Investment grant, and the 2019 Screen Composers Guild of Canada's Apprentice Mentorship Program. This has allowed Ally to mentor with David Findlay and Lukas Pearse, who are accomplished screen composers of diverse backgrounds, and gain valuable knowledge and skills.
Ally is a member of the Screen Composer's Guild of Canada, Screen Nova Scotia, Alliance for Women Film Composers, and Women in Film & Television Atlantic.
