About the Author
Lyza spent a lot of her youth debating whether she wanted to be a graphic designer or a programmer. These two sides pitched such a fierce battle that in the end, she couldnt remember which was which. Finally, she ended this war when she had the peaceful epiphany that she could be both.
Lyza grew up here in Portland, skipped out on high school a bit early in favor of college, and earned her BA at Portland State University. She spent a while living in England after that, attending the University of Birminghams (UK) masters program in computer science.
Lyza likes to do bits of everything. She likes things that change and evolve, and values lifelong education and figuring out how to do things. She takes a fair amount of photographs, reads like the dickens, loves wine (both drinking it and learning about how grapes are grown and processed), is obsessed with Portland and can usually be found tethered to the Internet.
