Allison comes to Cantina with over 10 years of front-end web development and consulting experience. Several years ago she was bitten by the open-source bug and became a convert, particularly to the Drupal CMS, which has since led her to focus on content strategy as a whole. Regardless of platform, she relishes the challenge of molding business requirements, information design and technical considerations into an elegant solution which serves the needs of the client and their users while also looking good and performing well. As a consultant, she has worked with clients such as IDG/Infoworld, AAA of California, Fox Home Entertainment, Activision, The Washington Times, Analog Devices, Harvard University, John Hancock Investments and Boston Capital. In her spare time, Allison plays bass and keyboards, standup paddles the waters off Cape Ann, and gets pushed around by her dog and two house rabbits.
