Allie is a developer of SecureDrop at Freedom of the Press Foundation. 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.
