Alyssa Leicht 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 cameras since 2009, when she finally moved to a small city with -gasp- two music venues and a DIY hardcore scene. Now she lives in Des Moines (there are a few more music venues there) and she travels the world. Alyssa loves cats, hands, and garage rock bands. She's a weirdo 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 phone for Spotify when everyone else's battery has died.
