Iowa native Alyssa Leicht is passionate about music. She grew up in the middle of nowhere and missed out on that epic time when all the kids when to the punk shows at the local all-ages music venue, but she's been making up for it with her camera since 2009, when she finally moved to a bigger town with -gasp- two music venues and an underground punk and hardcore scene. Now she lives in a decent size city with a few more venues (hello, Des Moines!) and she travels the world. Alyssa is obsessed with plants, cats, hands, and garage rock bands. She's a weirdo herself and enjoys the company of other weirdos. She travels light and doesn't take up much space in the van on tour. She has been known to share her Spotify account when everyone else's battery has died.
