Hi, I’m Alyssa. I’m a writer, editor, and tech-enthusiast currently based in Palo Alto, California, hailing from Westport, Connecticut. For the past year, I have put my skills to use as a proposal writer and communications adviser for ReputationDefender, a Silicon Valley tech company, and the leader in the online reputation management industry. Through this, I have expanded my writing repertoire, in addition to developing new skills pertaining to SEO and social media strategy.

Prior to this position, I served as an editorial assistant at World Policy Journal, an international relations journal based in New York City, and as a creative assistant for Tauck, a tour-operating company based in Wilton, Connecticut. Having obtained a Bachelor's Degree in English/Creative Writing (with a heavy concentration in art therapy and gender studies) from Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts, I cultivated an interest in exploring themes of identity and location through an autobiographical lens. These ideas fuel my creative writing, in addition to my outlook on life.
