Alessio Summerfield is an independent filmmaker, co-creator of Dev Diary, and one-half of St. Louis-based directing/producing duo, Forever an Astronaut.

Loves bad jokes, being overly theatrical, and traveling. Does not enjoy passive-aggressive behavior, wearing socks with your sandals, contemporary country music.

Some things that he likes to tell people when he feels like he has to defend his professional life are that he’s spent 5 months on the road with MTV, he’s worked with Adult Swim on their Carnival Tour, he (with his band) opened for musician Dan Deacon, and he once traveled to Dubai for a week to film an extremely lavish wedding reception – “it was nuts and lasted nearly 16 hours”.

If he were to die at the time of writing, he’d be survived by his beautifully intelligent and intelligently beautiful wife, Kristen, his three cats (Rosemary, Francois, and Pia in chronological order), and his super cute Shiba Inu, Jerry.
