Hello.

I’m Jess Allison. Being a Jess has its ups and downs - you never have to spell it out, but there's always more than one of you. You'll probably get a nickname, for practical reasons. A few years ago some people started calling me Jallison, which became Jalli. It's a funny thing about nicknames that you can't choose them yourself, but luckily I think it's kindof sweet. Phew.

I’m the type of person who likes making lists and for things to be organised neatly. I'm living proof that Desktop Zero is real.

I spent five years running a web collective called That Mob, then two and a half as a Producer at Icelab. More recently I spent six months helping to champion financial literacy at SuperEd, and am now the Delivery Manager at Paper Giant. Have we worked together? You can find me on LinkedIn.

I like to dabble in code and learn how things fit together. For this site I started with the Skeleton template, which was possibly overkill but did the trick!

According to Pinterest, my dream home is a cabin-style industrial warehouse loft with lots of plants and natural light, a rooftop courtyard and a pool. In the middle of the city. I'm not sure if that's indecision, or ambition? I think I just like to keep my options open.

I love taking photos, either on the fly or planned photo excursions. My Flickr account revival is imminent.

Travel is my lifeblood; I’m always dreaming up the next trip. 2018 has me crushing on Italy, although I may have to settle for Hobart. I'm also a bit of an Americanophile but Melbourne will always be home.

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to drop me a line sometime.

<3 Jess
