Reporter/Producer @DNA_wpb ahauser@dnainfo.com

Alisa Hauser moved to Wicker Park in 2005 after living in Logan Square, Old Irving Park and Uptown. From 2009 until joining DNAinfo Chicago, and with the help of a core team, she ran an independent neighborhood blog, chicago-pipeline.

Though Alisa did not study journalism at Ohio University, in Athens, Ohio, she could not resist sending letters to the editor of the school newspaper. The habit landed her a four-year stint writing columns and features for the 'townie' newspaper, The Athens News. Alisa's byline has also appeared in the Lockport-Lemont Sun, Chicago Reader, Chicago Journal and other publications.

Fun fact: Alisa will never pass up a game of Words with Friends.
