Kallie Thomson

Kallie is an adventurer, dreamer, and risk-taker. She was the first one to meet our artisans in Uganda and dream up the idea for 31 Bits. It’s no surprise she has the ability to connect deeply with everyone she meets. She graduated from Vanguard University with a degree in Cultural Anthropology. She oversees our international operations and is our lead designer. She gathers her inspiration from nature, culture, and the runway. Kallie currently lives in Bali with her husband, their adorable daughter, and their two pet bunnies. They love surfing, yoga, and being in nature. On the weekends, you'll find them adventuring around Indonesia or meeting with local artisans to customize decor for their home. They are incredible cooks and eat vegan, taking advantage of Bali’s amazing local produce.

"31 Bits has proven you can be transparent about how your products are made without losing quality and design." - Kallie

Alli Talley

Alli’s love for travel started when she was young as she grew up traveling the world with her parents. We call her the “walking Yelp” - name any city in the world and she’ll give you a list of the top 10 things to do and eat while you’re there! She has a degree in Interpersonal Communications from Vanguard University and is our PR Director. She loves speaking in abbreviations, always knows the latest Kardashian drama, and has gone on more cruises than your grandma. She’s married to a high school math teacher and they have the happiest dog of all time, a Bernadoodle named Sally. When they aren’t hanging with their dog, they’re usually trying a new restaurant or traveling the world...you can follow their adventures on instagram at @traveling_newlyweds.

“We didn’t feel qualified or ready when we started 31 Bits, but we took the leap! If you have a specific passion, don’t wait. There will never be a “perfect opportunity” to start a business.” - Alli

Jessie Simonson

There are certain people in this world who have a million projects up their sleeves, ideas in their heads, and thrive off little-to-no sleep. Meet our Brand Director, Jessie. She is our art director, storyteller, and energizer bunny. She’s late to just about everything because she stops to chat with just about everyone. She graduated from Vanguard University with a degree in Cultural Anthropology. She loves being involved at her church and spends time working with the local homeless community. She’s the queen of hosting dinners and throwing themed parties, and will beat you in any costume contest. She spends most weekends outdoors and loves public speaking, traveling, and drinking iced coffee like it’s water.

"Failure is when you ignore an opportunity to help someone reach their dreams." - Jessie
