Born and raised in San Francisco, Annalee moved to Portland to attend Reed College, where she received her B.A. in Sociology. She wrote her senior thesis on the news media and its relationship to feminist activism. For as long as she can remember, Annalee has been fascinated by pop culture and, after a Bratmobile-inspired political awakening at 15-years-old, has connected that interest to a feminist framework. Her post-graduation life has been filled with playing video game "drums" in Rock Band, working as the Operations and Development Assistant at Bitch (while moonlighting as a gelato-scooper/barista), and, most recently, moving to Seattle.
