Hey, I'm Allie. I'm a front-end web developer and former textile designer who loves making things for the internet. My interests lie at the intersection between good code and awesome user interfaces.

After a few years of coding professionally, in early 2013 I attended Hacker School, where I wrote a lot of Javascript and explored how the web works. I'm now working as a developer at PhotoShelter.

When I'm not writing code, I knit, cook and play a lot of video games. I live in Brooklyn with my adorably nerdy wife, our three-legged cat and a leopard gecko.
