Hi, I'm Alison and this is my website.

I'm a frontend developer living in Oakland, CA. ☀️

I work at a FinTech startup in San Francisco, and I spend my free time volunteering for Code for America at the OpenOakland brigade where I lead the brigade's communication efforts, including a monthly newsletter and social media presence, and I redesigned and launched a new open-source website for the organization this year.

I also enjoy rock climbing, city biking, traveling to other cities to ride their transit, and going outdoors when I can.

I studied Cognitive Science at UC Berkeley, and did two software engineering bootcamps after graduating from Cal in 2017. When I'm not reading a Vonnegut book, I like to learn about humans, psychology, design, and civic technology.
