Howdy! Alyssa here, your friendly neighborhood coffee enthusiast and humble multimedia producer at the Austin American-Statesman in Austin, Tx.

My newsroom uniform consists of many digital hats, from live streaming breaking news & producing podcasts to making sense of police dash cam footage & shooting videos about Internet celebrity pets, sportsball and taco cannons. I use a vast array of digital tools and platforms to tell Austin’s stories and create social media fodder for the Statesman’s multiple websites and social media channels.

In other words, I’m the multimedia middle-woman between the newsroom & the online audience. See also: "Living the dream."

When I’m not moonlighting as a journalism Jedi, I spend my time haunting coffee shops, going to Alamo Drafthouse movie events, playing video games and exploring the off-beat nooks and crannies of Austin while listening to public radio.

I’m always jonesing for a good conversation about digital trends, multimedia hacks and Star Wars (so long as we both agree that Han shot first). Simply find me around Austin, soy cortado in hand.
