About me (aka, my brief bio)

I am Laurie Allen and this is my personal website. It is almost always out of date. I work as a program analyst at the Library of Congress in the Office of Digital Strategy.

I am from Philadelphia, and I love my home city. Alongside my work at The Library of Congress, I also serves as Research Director for Monument Lab, a public art and history studio based in Philadelphia.
