Elise was born and bred into the arts industry as Will Travis' daughter and has had a direct link with their acting school, A Will and A Way, since the day it began. Elise has completed a performing arts course at Wigan school for the arts and then went onto working in finance after college. This is where Elise found the best way to link her skills with finance and the arts: to become the executive producer for Stolen Thread Productions Ltd. Elise started with her first production "The Sketch Men : Attempted Comedy" which was awarded a four-star review by Upstaged. This was performed at the Manchester Fringe Festival in July 2016. Elise has also been in involved in the Holyshorts Film Festival Los Angeles in August, before returning home to work on "Monopoleyes" which is an ACE funded piece of work to come out in Winter 2016 at Manchester theatres over 2 weeks.
