Welcome ✨

Hi, I’m Allie 🧜🏻‍♀️ I’ve created this site to tell you a little more about me and my projects. All opinions, statements, writing, etc are purely my own and are not endorsed by my employer, my friends, my family, or anyone else!

Who am I?

Mostly a nerd 👩🏼‍💻 I’m currently working at, and loving, GitHub. Prior to GitHub I’ve been in a lot of different jobs - everything from working AV 🎤 and concerts 🎶 to face painting 👩🏼‍🎨. Most recently, I was at UCL as a service manager.

I love cats 😻, glittery things 💖, and more. My favourite colour is pink and I really appreciate kawaii fashion. Hugs are good, and the world needs more love for one another! Be kind ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Hobby Projects

While I have a lot of things I tinker with, I currently have two reasonably complete, ready-to-build projects on GitHub. Both fit nicely in kawaii-themed things and are fun projects for all ages:

Candy the Catacorn

Candy the Catacorn 🐱🦄 is a catacorn-themed mini badge. It has capacitive touch ears and lots of LEDs, and is a lot of fun to build and a great beginner project that kids and grown-ups alike can build and have fun with.

This board was prototyped with the Adafruit Trinket M0 so if you don’t like my adaptations or just want to learn things yourself, that’s probably a good place to start. Same for Meow Meow Ears below, but less so (e.g. they have no DotStar-compatible LED for status).

Meow Meow Ears

Meow Meow Ears are a pair of RGB cat ears on a headband. The boards are designed to fit into most typical cat ear headbands and the sample code is designed for PlatformIO.
