Girl Crush: Allison House!

Girl Crush is a monthly feature which profiles awesome female creative/techie types I admire (and whom I may or may not want to bed).

The Facts
  • Who is she: The perpetually cheerful Product Designer at Dropbox. Part web designer, part gamer chick, part Star Wars fanatic.
  • Website: Midday Latte
  • Twitter: @house

Why she's awesome:

I met Allison at last year's Front End Design Conference, where she was a speaker. She is instantly likable and incredibly perky, the kind of person that makes you comfortable right away. I first discovered Allison after she designed one the of best job applications I've ever seen. After witnessing her mad chops, it's easy to see why she's a well sought-after designer, lending her skills to Carsonified, Treehouse, and Codeacademy. Plus, she's one gutsy gal, moving cross-country twice in a year's time. I have a hard enough time moving across town.

Now's she joining the team at Dropbox, and I can't wait to see what's in store, for both one of my favorite products, and one of my favorite people.

Ummm... "Girl Crushes"?

CNN defines a girl crush as "part jealousy, part admiration," and I agree. I love women who are uncompromising, whether it be in there professional or personal lives. I admire fierceness, intelligence and talent. The women in this feature embody that and more.

I'm Mina Markham, a Sass-lovin' front-end architect in Dallas, TX. I founded the Dallas chapter of Girl Develop It & DFW Sass. I love conferences; I co-organize Front Porch & give talks all over.
