About Me


Exploration and a deep desire to learn has led Allen to venture down many roads. 

As a young boy Allen’s mother joined the navy and he traveled with her to many places including to high school at Leilehua in Wahiawa Hawaii. It was here that Allen developed his first black and white image. The family moved during his senior year to Southwest high in San Diego where he graduated and entered the Marine Corps.  After Five years in the Marine Corps Allen took several jobs as a security contractor, Private investigator and Executive Protection agent.

Formal learning was important and  Allen has earned a BS in Security Administration at Lewis University, Joliet IL. And a MBA from Phoenix University in Reno NV.
