International woman of mystery hailing from Dublin Ireland.
Ailís Logan hails from the land of the little people, Dublin Ireland to be exact. She is one of seven children, her mother Emily Logan (née Guerrini) was a theatre actress and drama teacher of Irish -Italian descent. Her father John Logan was born in the Bronx, New York before moving with his Irish parents back to Limerick in Ireland. He was an international boxer in his youth and worked in the Irish civil service.
Ailís studied printing and publishing at a technical college in Dublin and had an aptitude for teaching herself things about computer software applications. This led to a career in IT management. At 31 she was appointed President of a software company in Tokyo, Japan based on her natural ability to deal with chaos - a skill developed in childhood!
After six years in Japan a serious case of wanderlust ensued and she is now a happy global digital nomad. Her day job is in IT consulting to international publishers as well as career advice to international skilled migrants. She describes herself as a semi-geek with social skills!
As part of a desire to overcome performance anxiety, Ailís studied theatre acting in Melbourne and loved it. Improvisation is where she finds her greatest joy. At the tender age of 48 Ailís got an agent and landed roles in two Indie Australian features (Alvin’s Harmonious World of Opposites playing the protagonist’s boss and Restoration playing Chief Neuroscientist Dr Frances Parr) Theatrical improvisational training propelled her to develop strong stories and create unique, memorable characters. Writing the material for Wine Lake came out of this process. Ailís is currently developing Wine Lake into a feature length screenplay. She openly admits to being an “act-oholic”; a term she coined during some improvisation classes. Ailís is 53 and lives in Byron Bay Australia with her fur-child Chico.
