Alyia is a producer for Mogul. Her talents have been featured on Crosscurrents, The Kitchen Sisters, and Spooked. But before all of that, she was known all over Yelp as the "waitress with the extremely long and decorative nails". She hails from Kansas City, Missouri but don't hold that against her. And she currently has no hobbies cause her hobby is now her job...Thank goodness.
