About Allen

Raised in beautiful Vancouver BC, worked in Taiwan for a few years and now in Seattle.
Currently on a mission to connect people F2F in real life — i.e the opposite of what VR is doing.
- I open boxes of ideas for people
- I am great at breaking things (in a good way)
- I am also awesome at building things

Have a strong curiosity and interest in just about everything. Loves great products with great designs — especially ones that enrich people's lives or are empathetic.

Tidbits:
- Worked on a ton of version 1 products at corporations & startups
- Founded/Co-founded 3 startups to-date
- Worked at a startup that was acquired by Google
- Got my bartending license way back in 2005
- No publications (unless Medium counts)
- No awards (at least none that you'll have heard of)
