About Alanna Risse

Hello, I am a web developer, artist, and mom. I live in North Portland, Oregon with my partner, kid, dog, hamster, and fish. I’ve been web developing since somewhere around 1998 for places like Yahoo! guru.com, Gap, Inc., Williams & Sonoma, Timbuk2 Designs. Before then I did a whole bunch of software QA for or with audio/midi/video software.

I like to write things. I wrote a really giant Photoshop book for John Wiley & Sons once. I’ve written tech articles for webmonkey. I’ve written art reviews and articles about kid friendly restaurants and fun stuff to do with your kids. Right now I’m thinking a great deal about women and tech.
