Political Web Developer
Activism and progressive politics have been at Alison’s core from the beginning. From her early youth days of volunteering and spending a semester abroad studying socio-political issues in East Africa to later projects documenting the Muslim-American experience in post-9/11 America and the LGBTQ community in Texas, she has always been engaged in the community around her. Alison’s online career began in graduate school in 2003 where she studied photojournalism and what was then called multimedia presentation. She learned not only how to tell stories in images and text, but also how to use the web to combine photography, video, text, sound, and movement to engage viewers with captivating stories. Since 2015, Alison has been able to combine her passions for storytelling, web development, and activism – designing and developing websites for a wide array of non-profits and progressive candidates and campaigns on the NationBuilder platform.
