Allie is a Senior Software Engineer at Freedom of the Press Foundation. She is currently working as part of the infrastructure team and was previously the technical lead of the SecureDrop Workstation project.
Her interest in programming grew from her love of computer animation and art. She’s been involved in numerous software projects since 2006, from developing visual effects pipeline tools for major motion pictures to writing performance analysis software.
Allie worked for Etsy while living in NYC and attended Recurse Center before deciding to move back home to Portland, OR in 2018. She rejoices once again in hiking in the rain and freaks out whenever there's half an inch of snow. Allie now works from an all-women coworking space, happily using her skills to provide secure software for activists.
