• CEO, Unblocked Future

    Alison has been helping pioneers navigate the intersection of human behavior and emerging technology for over two decades.


    A social scientist by training, Alison has advised executives on the adoption and communication of emerging technology across industries as diverse as healthcare, education, telecommunications, energy, retail, finance, hospitality, and manufacturing over a twenty year strategy consulting career. Before turning her focus to blockchains and the related family of technologies, Alison had been concentrating her work with early stage teams in data science and analytics, machine learning, IoT, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence.


    As the CEO and Founder of consulting collective Unblocked Future, Alison's clients are entrepreneurs using blockchains to shape a new future, and established companies working to leverage the power of blockchains. She advocates for the thoughtful development and communication of blockchain technology, educates on the potential for an alternate digital future, and works to raise blockchain literacy among non-technologists.







  • Working at the intersection of social science and new technology for over two decades, Alison has devoted her career to understanding and driving behavior change.


    She has helped executives and founders of over 100 companies to drive adoption in new markets and dynamic environments. Her work now centers on helping teams that are working to make the decentralized future a reality.


    An unequivocal nerd, Alison grew up among the orchards that would one day metamorphize into a dizzying array of Silicon Valley startups. On Saturday mornings Alison and her brother would forsake watching cartoons to program their first computer, a Timex Sinclair ZX81, to scroll their names across the television screen. It was strangely thrilling.
