Dani Alpert
Writer, Performer and creator of The Girlfriend Mom

Dani’s first acting photo was her mugshot taken after getting arrested for tagging
an overpass in the town where she grew up. Other lofty accomplishments include
working out in the NYU gym alongside Adam Sandler, while attending film school.
She followed that up with a move to Los Angeles, where she worked out in a gym
alongside Facts of Life star, Mindy Cohen, while attending The American Film
Institute.

While living in Los Angeles, Dani dabbled in everything, from writing feature films,
to writing and performing several acclaimed solo shows. She is the writer, director and star of the film festival breakout, A Really Intimate Portrait... Of a complete unknown.

Dani left Los Angeles to teach English as a foreign language in the Czech Republic. However when English felt like it was her second language she quit and moved back to New York, where she became the Girlfriend Mom.

She was in a committed relationship with a divorced father of two, but never wanted children of her own. Enter The Girlfriend Mom, because no other title fit.

Dani has written for Pilates Style Magazine, StepMom Magazine, Blogher, and Babble. She performs in the live show Mortified, in New York and recently completed her first book.
