Hello! My name is Allen.
I am an entrepreneur, brand developer, artist, marketer and one who gets enthusiastic about ideas. I have a number of websites, but this is the place where you can find general information about what I may be able to do for you.
I BUILD BRANDS
Few things are more exciting to me than the art of creation. I enjoy being deeply absorbed in the process of ideation, conceiving brand names and key messages while designing identity systems within strategic frameworks. I strive to deliver truly authentic branding strategies that resonate with audiences and produce real results for my clients.
I LIKE TO FIND ANGLES
My mind is always trying to connect things. I continually look for indirect correlations and unique associations to push marketing concepts into impactful messages that command attention. I love to conceive and execute creative metaphors. I rely on a hand-crafted, tried-and-true approach that always remains somewhat of an alchemy...
I BRING IDEAS TO LIFE
From mind to market, I provide many areas of commercialization consulting to clients in many corners of the globe. I highly value efficiency while ensuring things are done correctly and accurately. My partners and I have developed systematic, proven approaches for launching products in a variety of industries. I also have the experience in structuring and scaling businesses accordingly.
I'M HUNGRY FOR ADVENTURE
I love to travel, but an ever-burning "fire in the belly" takes it a little deeper than that. I believe life is an odyssey and am inspired by new challenges that come in many forms. People describe me as tireless and I perform well in unstructured environments, often taking a leadership role when necessary. I tend to see opportunity in everything and wholeheartedly welcome new challenges of all types.
I TAKE UNIQUE PHOTOGRAPHS
Whether armed with my trusty Nikon or merely slinging a camera phone, I enjoy capturing moments and objects from a creative perspective. I'm an established photographer with a rather broad and diverse portfolio. At this time, the primary focus is on commercial work congruent with my other initiatives. However, my creative spirit fuels a continual evolution of my competencies through varied personal and conceptual project ambitions.
I RUN WITH RUNNERS
Metaphorically, of course. I'm a horrible distance runner, but happen to be one of the quickest on my club soccer team (if that's any consolation). I tend to be a catalyst and not one who is comfortable "sitting with sitters." Frankly, inaction and complacency quickly become challenging to my intrinsic spirit. So if you are a fast-mover with an exciting idea, company or opportunity, let's talk!
