About the Creator

Amy Galland, Creator of Plume

Amy started Plume because the current emojis just weren’t enough for her to flirt with and there was not enough security on the popular messaging apps. She wanted to create a platform where people could feel safe to communicate their intimate thoughts and desires to their special (or hope-to-be special) someone(s) with images that were fun, flirty, sexy, and inclusive of different races, body types, and sexual orientations.

Prior to founding Plume, Amy was the Research Director at As You Sow where she wrote numerous publications analyzing industry performance on key issues of corporate responsibility. Previous to that, she worked as a project manager and production coordinator in the music industry. She holds degrees in art history, anthropology, philosophy, and business.
