About Allison

Strategist / Researcher / Designer / Activist / Entrepreneur

 

STRATEGIC. FUTURISTIC. CONTAGIOUSLY ENTHUSIASTIC.

I'm a San Francisco-based Designer, Researcher and Strategist with 4+ years of professional experience researching, designing and leading product and service innovation, with a passion for positively impacting people's lives and a background in anthropology (including ethnographic research) at McGill University. 

I enjoy getting to know people, tackling complex problems, using research to defend design ideas, and applying anthropological methods to tech and service design. I'm especially passionate about social and environmental issues, and would love to work with other people excited about social justice. In my spare time, I love to travel, sail and learn about new trends in tech and design.

I'm open to contract and consulting opportunities; be in touch if you'd like to work together.
