My name's Alyssa Nodorft (that's no-dorf ), nice to meet you.

Design has been my passion ever since I installed Photofiltre when I was twelve to make myself the coolest MySpace avatar in the sixth grade class. Twelve years later and MySpace is far gone, but my eye for good design remains (and has improved significantly from 2009).

I also love painting (and all crafting in general), pugs (they run in the family), and astronomy (which ceased to be a career choice after junior year physics class.) So, here I am, creating while living on limitless ambition, late night bowls of cereal and the state motto of New York.
