A blog by Alessia Bellisario

Hey there đź‘‹

I'm Alessia Bellisario, a software engineer based in NYC. I'm currently reading Alien Hearts.

I work on the Venmo team at PayPal as a Senior Front End Engineer. In April 2019 I attended the Recurse Center - I'm always happy to chat about RC with anyone considering applying.

I'm using this space to write about programming—my current interests include Rust and graphics—and building mechanical keyboards. If any of this is of interest to you, say hi! You can reach me at web[at]

Finally, here's a list of tools and doodads I use in the course of my life and work.

A note on tracking: In January 2020, I decided to host my own instance of Fathom, a GDPR-compliant open source analytics platform for tracking basic metrics about this site without collecting any personal or invasive data.
