JavaScript Developer & Word Nerd

Hi, I'm Allison.

JavaScript SQL jQuery Node HTML5 CSS & CSS frameworks project management workshops & small group facilitation marketing social media writing & editing

I grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, but I now call Portland home. I have over nine years experience in arts administration and nonprofit program development in San Francisco and Portland.

In spring 2015, I began learning web development online. I instantly loved the satisfaction of understanding the architecture underneath the surface of websites and apps. Over the past several months, I've built websites and web applications, and become well-versed in HTML5, CSS, and front-end JavaScript. Along the way, I've also added jQuery, Node, MVC architecture, JavaScript templating, and SQL to my toolkit. I am drawn to web development because I love to build things, tell stories, and implement creative solutions.

I'm also passionate about literary fiction, children's books, crossword puzzles and other word nerdery, and digging in my vegatable garden. I skated for five seasons with the Rose City Rollers, Portland's flat-track roller derby league, and currently coach the Rose City Rosebuds All-Stars, a roller derby team of 12-18 year old youth.

I'm seeking a full-time position in web development that engages my skillset and my love of continuous learning. I'm also looking to connect with people in the Portland tech community and beyond who are making cool things and are passionate about their craft.
