alyssa is an urbanist, human, feminist, and opalescent tree shark. she is begrudgingly willing to admit she is a hufflepuff.
she graduated the university of california los angeles with concurrent masters degrees in architecture and urban planning. she finished her 4 year degree in 3 years while managing multiple student organizations and helping found a student journal, POOL. she is still very tired from this endeavour.
she currently works at IBI Group on their R&D team.
in her limited spare time she reads exclusively young adult fiction and walks around cities.
