MotoLady was created by Alicia Mariah Elfving as a way to encourage current and aspiring women riders by displacing the bad reputation the sport / hobby has racked up over the years. It is a website built for men and women motorcyclists alike. Those who appreciate women riders can find a massive amount of media here for daily distraction. Real moto ladies, motorcycles in art and design, motorcycle fashion and gear, news stories and submissions are a few of the things covered.
Alicia is a “jack of all trades” type of woman and prides herself on being versatile, capable, logical, clever, and passionate all at the same time. Her experience occupies many fields and continues to grow, as does her hunger for knowledge.
She started out as a retail associate working during the Holiday season, doing freelance graphic and web design in the little spare time she had between school work and selling video games and alt clothing at the mall. Soon thereafter she began a Supervisory job doing clerical work and quality assurance for a Market Research firm. Having mastered spread sheets, data bases, and multiline phone systems, she moved on to more invigorating work… but not very. It was at this time Alicia began working for an small e-commerce business doing Search Engine Optimization and graphic design.
Later, Alicia took a job at a small interactive design firm, Exprima Media doing web research, graphic design, and office administration. It was in her two years here that she really became aware of the direction she wanted to steer her life in.
Throughout her time at Exprima and beyond, Alicia worked as the Producer and Stylist for a photographic company with Kenneth Benjamin Reed called Vorpal Images. Their work ranged from fine art to commercial advertising and editorial fashion work. Here is where she honed her impeccable understanding of composition, lighting, and concept development.
In early January of 2011, Alicia stumbled upon Tumblr. Amused by it’s simplicity, user friendly layout and networking methodology, the gears began to turn. This would be the perfect venue for her piles of moto-media! A few days of planning later on January 12th, 2011… MotoLady was born.
