Amie Freetly

Amie Freetly works at moovel North America, using frontend UI technology to build responsive web experiences. Amie left a carless life in Chicago, in 2008, on the promise of a soon-to-open light rail in Austin. As Austin is slowly trying to live up to those transit dreams, Amie works on moovel’s ride-aggregating web tools to help people find other ways to get around.  Amie studied Architecture at UIC, and practiced in the field before moving to technology.
