Neoliberalism


Real Name: Chloe McCullum-O'Neill       Age: 20                                              Favorite author: Tina Fey                          Bio: Neoliberalism grew up in Oakland, California, where her parents invest in and run several successful startups.

Aurora is viciously opposed to capitalism and Silicon Valley culture, and regularly uses her computer skills to subvert those who would attempt to defile her personal code of technological honor.
