Alyssa is a New York-born writer living in North Jersey (which she promises is not as bad as people like to think.) She specializes in film, food and entertainment stories. When she's not writing, or excessively binging on podcasts, she can usually be found treating herself to a solo movie date at a theater near you. She is on a self-imposed mission to conquer every local winery and brewery in the places she visits - so far, she’s excelling. It’s a tough job, but someone needs to test the wine!
